public void place_cursor (TextIter where)
This function moves the “insert” and “selection_bound” marks simultaneously.
If you move them to the same place in two steps with move_mark, you will temporarily select a region in between their old and new locations, which can be pretty inefficient since the temporarily-selected region will force stuff to be recalculated. This function moves them as a unit, which can be optimized.
