Didn't notice that.  It's good, but completely non-obvious, which is a
problem in and of itself.  Most people (myself included) are going to click
around with the mouse.  Also, this isn't anywhere on the context menu, nor
is it listed in the documentation (which I checked when I was trying to
figure this out).

I would be happy to update the documentation to list this (very important)
feature if someone could tell me how.  That being said, this shouldn't be
taken as me withdrawing my idea.

Thanks for pointing that out, though -- it'll make my life a lot easier.
