It should invoke the function LaTeX-environment, prompting you to
choose a environment. It should then put the start tag of that
environment (e.g \begin{theorem}) at the start of your marked area,
and the end tag at the end of the marked area.

The use case is as follows: I have written a paragraph, and it turns
out it should not be part of the main flow of text, but rather a
definition. I mark the paragraph, C-c C-e and select definition, and
then the paragraph gets the \begin{definition} ... \end{definition}
around it. Currently i need to either write the begin-end manually, or
do  C-c C-e at the start of the paragraph, and then cut-paste the
\end{..} to the end of the paragraph.
