Just an option to insert/replace the rectangle selection with a
user-typed string instead of numbers. The result is the same as if you
simply type the text in a rectangle selection, only faster for a large
number of lines, and can be undone with a single undo. This duplicates
existing functionality, so I'm not sure about putting it in the plugin.
