Thanks John,

I tried out that snippet. It works great, and as advertised. I think will be a useful function.

Here are few notes I have on this:
- The functions need docstrings
- It will also be useful to document them in the manual ( (emacs) Rectangles )
- I first wondered why you named it edit-rectangle instead of rectangle-edit. But then I realized that all rectangle commands are named that way: kill-rectangle, clear-rectangle, etc.. So that's why?

This is functionality I'd like to add to rect.el. It allows you to specify a
rectangular region, and then edit just the contents of that rectangle in a
separate buffer. When finished (C-c C-c), it replaces the old rectangle using
insert-rectangle with the new contents.

I'd appreciate comments on usability, fitness, etc.
