        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    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.

If we can't see a reasonable thing to do in such cases,
we could give an error when trying to use the rectangular region
if the text isn't suitable to cope with.
