New in Emacs 25.1: Better Rectangles

Continuing on this cheerful series, we now go into rectangles. The release notes are pretty self-explanatory on this one, so a few gifs should be enough to convey what's needed.

* Rectangle editing ** Rectangle Mark mode can have corners past EOL or in the middle of a TAB.

* C-x C-x in rectangle-mark-mode now cycles through the four corners.

* `string-rectangle' provides on-the-fly preview of the result.
