transient-mark-mode and I like that it is activated by default. But there are a few specific buffers where I'd like to deactivate it. Unfortunately, that minor mode is either on or off globally, so you can't have it in some buffers and not in some others.
It seems that a possible workaround would be to void the highlighting face on a buffer local basis. What are the involved variables? Anybody has done this?
Or is there a better workaround?
