Perhaps I should have been more specific. If you mark a rectangle in
Geany, without any plugins, and start typing, the characters will be
inserted in each marked line. That's the function my plugin will
duplicate if I add an option to insert/replace rectangular selection
with a plain string.

I do; Geany's typing text into a vertical selection is undone
character by character. The single start/end undo pair is what makes
the plugin faster (well, and the single screen refresh too).

IMHO, it's time to change the subject, and mail the plugin's main .c
file, so anyone interested can take a look and send remarks,
suggestions etc. Thanks in advance.
