I haven't tried the new behaviour yet, so I haven't made up my mind, but 
there *was* discussion about this among the KSS people, Limi and others 
nearby in Baarn. At the time, it sounded like a good idea at least, 
re-using the UI from Google Calendar, Flickr and other sites with 
similar needs. It was even in Alex' opening presentation. :)

In any case, if I'm not mistaken this is a pretty simple thing to change 
(it just depends on which KSS event you bind it to), so we are able to 
fix it in time, possibly even shipping the beta with one solution to 
gage reaction and being allowed to change our minds if it's negative.

How about a highlight-on-hover like we have now, but with double-click 
instead of single-click?

Also, is the event on mouse *down* or up or on click? On-click should 
mean that click-drag selection is safe (I think, I'm not sure how 
browsers define a click).
