Hi Marcel,

> Hmm... it is unusual that a normal click can also select a range.

Hmm, no, I don't think so.  Swipe select is very common -- like
swiping characters in text, or cells of a spreadsheet, and
"MultiselectList" was (is?) the basis of many browsers in VisualAge Smalltalk.
In Squeak it's called PluggableListMorphOfMany (used by changes
browser) and it's [Alternate] incantation which doesn't lose
selections simply because your framerate is too low..

And, yes, Control was *supposed* to be a modifier key to toggle
individuals, but as Jakob pointed out, it's intercepted by the halo.

All the functions Tim mentioned are currently available via the menus.
