Unfortunately I have very little time to devote to coding currently, and 
haven't really been keeping up with the changes here.  In 2.4 The user 
can no longer use a selection tool to "tear off" and float a selected 
region, am I right?  If you want to select and move a region you now 
have to manually float with either ctrl-shift-L or do Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V, 

If floating selections are to be removed, how do you anticipate a user 
selecting a section of an image and moving it?  By creating a proper 
layer from the selection?
