Well, I can agree in this. I think that the selected word/char should be
set as default (i.e. I often write in Italian thinks like
l'<many-vocal-starting-word>, since adding any word matching to
"[clmstv]'<many-vocal-starting-word>" would increase a lot the
dictionary I do prefer using the "'" as a non-dictionary char so when
I've to write a word like that I, for example, press "l", then "'" and
finally the word.
However this doesn't work always since the "l" is quite never selected
by default also if I press exactly on it; so I've to press "l", select
it in the list, do a backspace and finally writing the word.
You can figure that it's not so good :P).
