sorry, I don't want to  be a nuisance. However, I'd like to suggest to
include a function to copy a rectangle into the kill ring which is not available at the moment (only copy-rectangle-to-register).

C-x r k
C-x u
C-x r y

,----[ C-h f kill-rectangle RET ]
| kill-rectangle is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `rect.el'.
| It is bound to C-x r k.
| (kill-rectangle start end &optional fill)
| Delete the region-rectangle and save it as the last killed one.
| When called from a program the rectangle's corners are start and end.
| You might prefer to use `delete-extract-rectangle' from a program.
| With a prefix (or a fill) argument, also fill lines where nothing has to be
| deleted.
| If the buffer is read-only, Emacs will beep and refrain from deleting
| the rectangle, but put it in the kill ring anyway.  This means that
| you can use this command to copy text from a read-only buffer.
| (If the variable `kill-read-only-ok' is non-nil, then this won't
| even beep.)

,----[ C-h k C-x u ]
| C-x u runs the command advertised-undo
|   which is an alias for `undo' in `simple.el'.
| It is bound to C-x u.
| (advertised-undo &optional arg)
| Undo some previous changes.
| Repeat this command to undo more changes.
| A numeric argument serves as a repeat count.
| In Transient Mark mode when the mark is active, only undo changes within
| the current region.  Similarly, when not in Transient Mark mode, just C-u
| as an argument limits undo to changes within the current region.

,----[ C-h f yank-rectangle RET ]
| yank-rectangle is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `rect.el'.
| It is bound to C-x r y.
| (yank-rectangle)
| Yank the last killed rectangle with upper left corner at point.
