A lot of the extra select plugin deals with rectangular selections,
which are a bit of a mess in Scintilla, and incompatible with
multiply selections. So if you find some way to select multiply pieces
of text, you'd better _deactivate_ geanyextrasel to avoid collisions.
I have no plans to support multiply selections.

In X11, Ctrl+Mouse traditionally does rectangular selection, if
supported, and Alt+Mouse moves the current window (WM-dependent).
