duplicate lines everywhere in the region without regard to adjacency.
** New `cycle-spacing' command allows cycling between having just one
space, no spaces, or reverting to the original spacing. Like
`just-one-space' command it can handle or ignore newlines and
leave different number of spaces.

"Manipulate spaces around the point in a smart way.
When run as an interactive command, the first time it's called
in a sequence, deletes all spaces and tabs around point leaving
one (or N spaces). If this does not change content of the
buffer, skips to the second step:
When run for the second time in a sequence, deletes all the
spaces it has previously inserted.
When run for the third time, returns the whitespace and point in
a state encountered when it had been run for the first time.
For example, if buffer contains \"foo ^ bar\" with \"^\" denoting the
point, calling `cycle-spacing' command will replace two spaces with
a single space, calling it again immediately after, will remove all
spaces, and calling it for the third time will bring two spaces back
If N is negative, delete newlines as well. However, if
PRESERVE-NL-BACK is t new line characters prior to the point
won't be removed.
If SINGLE-SHOT is non-nil, will only perform the first step. In
other words, it will work just like `just-one-space' command."
