I assume you meant C-x SPC instead of M-x SPC (I guess we could
technically make M-x SPC do the job, but it would be a majorly ugly

C-SPC C-SPC is already taken, so it'd have to be C-SPC C-SPC C-SPC.
And C-M-SPC is also already taken (and I don't know about you, but
I use it extensively).

;; FIXME: lots of known problems with the new rectangle support:
;; - no key binding for mark-rectangle.
;; - no access to the `string-rectangle' functionality.
;; - lots of commands handle the region without paying attention to its

So, I guess, in summary, this counts as an additional vote for C-x SPC.
It looks like GUD will have to adapt.
