Well, it does have slight discoverability and ease-of-typing
 advantages over C-SPC C-g.

 Small thing to add to set-mark-command.  Might also be ui-consistent
 to augment momentary mark (transient-mark-mode = lambda) similarly
 when transient-mark-mode is t (perma-on), C-SPC C-SPC deactivates
 mark, but when transient-mark-mode is off, a third C-SPC after
 the C-SPC C-SPC turning on momentary mark cancels the momentary mark?

 Illustrative/trivial patch attached, seems nice in small tests, but
 dunno if there are any awful ramifications.
