Then there is a neat selection 'feature' used in some CAD 
applications (the biggest and most bloated):
Selection rectangle from left-to-right selects only those 
objects completely 'surrounded' by the rectangle, and a 
selection rectangle from right-to-left selects all objects 
which are 'touched' by the rectangle area. The direction of 
these selection methods is swappable.

Would that be desireable in a DTP app ?
