Hmm, it's a long time ago and it wasn't me who wrote the comment. I think 
the suggestions was to add '::cue(region)' and drop '::cue-region'. In 
other words: let '::cue' apply to regions (in addition to the other cues 
it already applies to) and then allow '::cue(region)' analogous to 
'::cue(v)' and '::cue(i)' for more specific selectors.
