I noticed this change in the excellent Emacs news, and that made me
wonder: would it make sense for this to also happen for other kinds of
marks, ticking, etc?

E.g. typing ! sets the "!"-mark and typing ! again would remove it?


(I wish the same would happen with marked files in dired, I can remember
to mark 'm', but I can never remember how to remove marks again...)


  Best regards,

    Adam

Hm...  well, an article may have many mutually exclusive readedness
states -- unread, read, ticked, dormant, so ideally "removing it" would
mean restoring the previous state, I guess?

So it's not as simple with these commands, I think, and might be pretty
confusing.

Somebody said there was a user option to control that in Dired, but I
haven't actually looked.  :-)

I thought, naïvely, that specifically ticked was unrelated to the
others, just "overriding" the display, but, yes, if they are intertwined
you are right it would probably be nigh impossible to make toggling do
the "right" thing in all cases.

Maybe I should just advice ! to do whatever it is I type to remove !'s,
if the article is already !'ed. Hm!

Just as I said I couldn't remember the keybinding, I pressed u and it worked...
