Thank you for taking a first look.

The problem is that selection editors derive from TBaseSelectionEditor
which in turn depends on IdeIntf functionality.

Also they are only really required inside the IDE (for third party
components they'd be part of a design time package), not during runtime of
the application.

In that sense they are similar to component editors which are in IdeIntf as
well (e.g. TFlowPanelComponentEditor in unit ComponentEditors).
