That is definitely useful, and something that is missing on Mac OS

than choose editmode).

Hmm, maybe I should make Cmd-Click behave like Ctrl-Click does on GNU/

glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
