Ctrl-click now selects within groups, ctrl-shift-click adds to selection
disregarding grouping. Multiple and nested groups work. Special care was
taken to preven double grouping when both a group and one of its descendants
are selected. Please test.
I also plan to implement cltr-alt-click to "select under", i.e. multiple
cltr-alt-clicks will cycle selection through the stack of objects at the
current point, starting from the topmost one and going towards the bottom
(also disregarding grouping). I would like to do the same for alt-click
_preserving_ grouping, but unfortunately alt-clicks are usually stolen by a

One thing -- as it is currently, you can select things within a group,
but not e.g. move them around when they are selected -- probably
contrary to user expectations.
I guess this means the next phase of my layers work just became more
important -- making groups that have selected children (descendants)
automatically 'transparent' (in the SPArenaGroup sense).
On the other hand, you're getting experienced with this code now. Do
you have ideas for how best to make these selected items draggable
directly? I think the code I originally had in mind to do
selection-dependant "event transparency" could get nasty to implement.
