What about this version:

(defun set-mark-command (arg)
  (interactive "P")
  (if arg (setq arg 1))
  (if (eq this-command last-command)
        (if arg
            (setq current-prefix-arg nil
                  arg nil)
          (setq current-prefix-arg last-prefix-arg)
          (setq arg 1)))
        (setq arg nil))
       ((eq transient-mark-mode 'lambda)
        (setq transient-mark-mode nil))
        (setq deactivate-mark t))
        (setq transient-mark-mode 'lambda)
        (setq arg 0))))
   ((null arg)
    (if (eq transient-mark-mode 'lambda)
        (setq transient-mark-mode nil))
    (push-mark nil nil t))
   ((= arg 0))
   ((null (mark t))
    (error "No mark set in this buffer"))
    (goto-char (mark t))

With transient-mark-mode off (nil), C-SPC C-SPC temporarily turns on
transient-mark-mode (lambda), and another C-SPC turns it off (and
moves the mark).

With transient-mark-mode on (t), C-SPC C-SPC sets and deactivates the mark.

As an added bonus, C-u C-SPC C-SPC C-SPC will pop back through the
mark stack, i.e. only the first command needs the C-u prefix.

To set (reactivate) the mark immedately following a series of 
C-u C-SPC C-SPC C-SPC C-SPC C-SPC commands, use C-u C-SPC (or
C-u C-SPC C-SPC to toggle transient-mark-mode).

This is a significant deviation from the old behaviour of C-u C-SPC,
but the new functionality is much easier to use...!
