Re: rectangle operations - narrowing?

there's a package, table.el, which does some stuff that's related,
though coming from a different direction.  it's concerned with
rectangular regions that are delineated by particular characters - but
it provides for things like auto-fill and motion commands that are
constrained to the bounds of those rectangles.

(i mention this in the hopes that there's some unification of effort
possible.  i am frustrated by the lack of control of the auto-fill in
table.el, for instance, and would love to have it and related
functionality generalized as you're suggesting, to generic emacs
operations confined to rectangular regions.  it's too hard to get the
current, specialized operations to do what i need.)

        to know what, if anything already exists for this,
        before I start trying to roll my own. I looked at the
        Emacs manual Rectangles stuff and library rect.el,
        but I didn't notice what I'm looking for.

    Did you also look at cua-rect?

I haven't yet, but I will. Thanks for mentioning it.
