That's why I described the whole Delphi selection. Delphi has some holes,
where it simply does nothing. I think, the best of both worlds would be
something like a 'Lazarus' mode and a 'Delphi+Lazarus extensions' mode,
where the Delphi holes are filled.
The only difference between them is:
- rubberband selects grand childs (Delphi: off, Lazarus: on)
I don't think, that we should invent modes for just one option.

Of course we could add a further option: 
- Keep Ctrl/Shift multiselection simple 
  (for users who like to press extra keys without any reason 
   except finger jogging)

But I'm not sure if this will be used often.
