What did you mean that to do when the rectangle crosses bidirectional
text?  Currently, the rectangle is "broken".  Similarly when the
rectangle includes characters of different sizes.

IOW, this "rectangle" works in character cell positions in the logical
order.  If this is what you meant, fine (but then it's not really a
rectangle in many use cases).  Otherwise, there's a lot of work yet to
make it a real rectangle.
