There is really no sense in entering the "empty string" as argument to 
string-rectangle. It won't do nothing.

String-rectangle has a side-effect: The selected rectangle is overwritten. But 
no-one would select a rectangle to overwrite with nothing. It takes much too 
many key strokes to achieve as a side-effect what kill-rectangle can perform 

And kill-rectangle has an optional third argument: FILL. Let's wonder what this 
third argument might do!



If it dies, it's biology.  If it blows up, it's chemistry. If it doesn't work, 
it's physics.
