yes, always

yes many years ago

no (but in emacs you learn something new every day :-))

I don't need it, since I don't intend to turn it of

C and C++

- since every once in a while one doesn't want/need an auto-newline, hungry
  delete mode comes in handy
- fortunately CPerl has the same feature
