I now understand what Andrea wanted in his initial request  -- transient-rectangle-mode.  In this mode, you would see the normal region selected by transient-mark-mode *and* the rectangle region in a different face.  So that the built-in Emacs rectangle functions just work.

It seems a very reasonable.

Andrea, have you filed a feature request like Kevin suggested?


Yes now I did :)
I think it could be a nice feature (of course customizable and off by default), because you don't need extra keys
and you can see immediately on what rectangle you're working on.

One other problem about the selection in general is that it doesn't create spaces and newlines automatically (like artist-mode for example).
Why is it done like that by the way?
Thanks,
Andrea
