the :selection spec was dropped. This is a very useful property to have at
our disposal, and I want to bring this to the forefront again. Please do
whatever you can to resolve the political and technical issues surrounding
this spec, and put it back into the UI. This may seem to be a minor issue
to some, but to others this is a very important property that must be
implemented, sooner than later.

We'll do so as soon as we figure out the technical problems and get someone
to shepherd the spec through. That's all that's ever been stopping the
feature.
