Emacs 24 Improvements: copy/paste, describe-char, calc keymap

Linux/Emacs Copy/Paste Problem
In linux, if copy/paste doesn't work with other apps, you need to add this line:
(setq x-select-enable-clipboard t)
in GNU Emacs 22.214.171.124, that var is set to t now.
When calling “describe-char”, now it display the char's position in the first line.
Here's emacs 23 output:
character: m (109, #o155, #x6d) preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV)) code point: 0x6D syntax: w which means: word …
Here's emacs 24 output:
position: 9198 of 11337 (81%), column: 0 character: m (displayed as m) (codepoint 109, #o155, #x6d) preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV)) code point in charset: 0x6D syntax: w which means: word
“calc”'s keymapping seems to have improved.
before, supposed you have set 【Alt+z】 for undo globally. But it won't work in calc. You have to use emacs's default. Now it does.
