I agree. "Unselect all" may not be that much needed (you can just click
outside the objects to unselect your selection, right?), but "Invert
selection" can be very useful.
I just checked in the Windows Explorer, and it has this option in the Edit
I also checked the special cases. When no objects are selected, it selects
all. When all objects are selected, it unselects all
(thus probably making a seperate "unselect all" option unnecessary in
this way too).
