i know it does what i want -- BUT i wanted to bind it to some different
key (since typing C-u C-SPC is inconvenient)... i could probably solve
it using macros. but i am exploring how to solve it thru some elisp
all i need is a lisp function that invokes set-mark-command with a
prefix argument.
once i have this elisp function, i can bind it to a key i want.

i see the exact lisp function i wanted -- goto-previous-mark -- written
by you
in the URL you pointed below.  thanks very much.
i shall keep checking the emacswiki for such goodies i guess...
