 My comment about cua-mode rectangles seems to have gottel lost in the shuffle.   IMO, this is the "agile" way to get exactly what you want.

1. evaluate (assuming you want no part of cua bindings)

(setq cua-enable-cua-keys 'emacs)
  ;; <kp-enter> rotates around the rectangle corners, if "RET" gets overriden
(cua-selection-mode 1)
2. select region you want, press C-enter, and your selection becomes a rectangle.   If the point isn't on the left side of the rectangle, press Enter until it moves there.

3. press Tab, space, backspace, whatever to change the indentation.  cua-mod rectangle remains selected.
