But for me that is more about *reading* it in a different medium--something about seeing the story on paper in double-spaced Courier makes it seem more real--then it is about the feel/mechanics of using a pencil to strike through and replace words and sentences.

I waver on this point. I'm more likely to do this for short stories, but not for longer pieces. I got out of this habit due to my day job and doing technical/IT writing -- I often don't have the luxury of waiting for a printout, managing the papers, etc. to review/edit the pieces I need to. I am now less likely to print for revision now because of that.
Maybe electronic revision is a learned skill?
