Yes, I think we could make the 0.20 release soon. If there are no
i18n string changes to add we could start the string freeze in a few
days maybe?

I think it would be best to put it in an 'unstable' branch. Last time
we updated Scintilla just before the 0.19 release it introduced
scrolling bugs.

I would prefer not to include this in the 0.20 release, just in case it
introduced bugs. I haven't noticed rectangular selection speed being an
issue personally.
