As a user I can say it is definitely desired. I miss the option to draw 
straight segments every time I use Freehand selection tool.

I think this is a good idea.

Perhaps UI team would like to consider IMHO logical approach as I see it. My 
logical expectation when using the Freehand select is that Shift key down mid 
drawing makes it a line segment, Ctrl constrains angle. It follows the UI 
logic of all other freehand tools. And it will not collide with boolean mode 
selection because those need to be down before you start drawing. It does 
create a bit of overloading, but this is very logical to the user. An option 
to set it in pure polygon mode where Ctrl is needed for freehand would be 
desired too.
