Cool, I will make all of the above changes, thanks for the notes.

This was a bit of finicky code mostly for aesthetic purposes. It has to
do with this case (the second clause in the test I added):

This is a paragraph

This is another paragraph

If point is on the first paragraph and the region is not active,
`org-mark-element' will mark the paragraph and all following whitespace,
which means we end up with:

This is a paragraph.

This is another paragraph.

Which just looked bad to me (even though it probably behaves perfectly
correctly). So if point is at bol, it skips back over the whitespace and
then moves forward one char, presumably leaving point right after the
marked element.

Maybe it should only skip back over newlines (though then indentation
will confuse it). Or maybe I should just not be so picky about
