Maybe there should be an option in text modes to insert two spaces on
typing SPC or M-SPC at the end of a sentence when`sentence-end-double-space'
is non-nil.  This means remapping SPC and M-SPC to some new command.

I also use `M-2 M-SPC' (three keystrokes).

In one of the older versions of KDE, M-SPC was captured by Katapult,
and it was not possible to redefine it.  I believe this is fixed
in the latest version of KDE.
