That would be too bad. Non-continguous selection would be so much more
useful, especially since "Open" and "Open in new window" are easily
accessible in context menu, and I don't expect them to be needed more
than tops a few times in a row. Selections, however,..

The suggestion post in Ubuntuforums is a quite random one, IMO: the
main point seems to be filling the middle click with something,
anything. A comparison to web browsers aren't very helpful either, as
they don't behave the same on middle or ctrl-click either.

Many other things in that post are very insightful though, only this
one seems not so thought through.
