When you hold down the middle mouse button and drag, a selection box forms in a parallelogram (or oval?). This will keep the same outlined shape and copy the terrain inside.

 

When you left-click somewhere else it will imprint the same thing (sort of as a brush). This would be useful as a quick eraser, a way to make patterns, and would generally make creating maps easier.

 

When you click the middle mouse button again, it goes back to the regular menu brush you had.

Kind of confused, do you mean as in a copy and paste sort of thing?

Sounds like you're describing a "Stamp" tool.. ?

I think that's what it would be, although I guess it would have to have the same options as the erase tool because there might be things someone doesn't want to copy over in the 'stamp'.
