Now that I think about it, I really like this idea:  it's very easy to
understand that C-SPC C-SPC and C-SPC are "active and non-active"
mark-setting commands, and simply swap roles depending on whether
full-t-m-mode is enabled, and obviously C-SPC C-SPC is very convenient
to type.

I've never really used the "push a mark" command much, as I use
t-m-mode, but I think if C-SPC C-SPC pushed a non-active mark, I would
use it more often.
