This is similar to the way I've done it before. It makes it cumbersome if
there are many lines below the cell that is to be inserted though..

It would be nice to have as a function that inserts or deletes a cell in the
same way as one can insert and delete rows and columns. Maybe as a prefix
to M-S-<left/right> and M-S-<up/down> ?
