That would be a distinctive improvement in this case.

Ok. We have two different definitions of select here. 1.) Select as in copy-paste etc. 2.) Select as in whole lines outlined for diff-editing purposes.

Today a single-click in the pane moves the caret to that location AND selects (in the second sense) that line.

So we need to define the 1-select and the 2-select behavior for each action. :-)
