Looks good to me.  Of course, you still have to indicate which direction
with "mark whole rank".  Another way to do it is "M<dir>M<opposite dir>",
which is good because the Alt-keystrokes are hard to do via telnet.

Ted, am I correct that the idea is that performing a marking operation
enters "marking mode", and any operation other than marking or cursor
moves (including quitting ZZ!) exits marking mode?
