yes it would be great to have all in one!

yes exactly, I'm referring to the space " " character. I want to make 
pressing the space-bar on the keyboard insert the " " character and 
additionally trigger an action string
therefor a text-operation that doesn't select the replacement would be 
needed and I haven't found one that behaves like needed. I think the editor 
stamp tool also uses "replace-selection" which leaves a selected " " if 
inserting a space character. Then, when typing, the space gets replaced by 
the first typed character... that's not what we want here

the "[[foo bar" example wouldn't work when using space as the trigger, but 
the trigger can be any key-combination that works as a keyboard shortcut. 
the problem is when and how the text stored in the separate tiddler should 
be reset ... my idea was to reset every time the space character is pressed 
so that it never contains the whole text which would be contraproductive
