           Summary: Feature: multiple-selection of brush vertices/edges
                    within the same face
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: editor
        AssignedTo: ttimo@idsoftware.com
        ReportedBy: wjoseph@europe.ea.com

The objective of this feature is to allow simulating edge-manipulation and face-
manipulation when in vertex-mode, by selecting two or three-or-more vertices 
from the same face at once.
GtkRadiant has always disallowed selection of more than one vertex/edge within 
the same brush face. Component-editing for brushes works by selecting one, two 
or three points from the plane of a given face. Moving the selection then moves 
the plane-points directly.
Perfect per-vertex selection is very difficult, because brush vertices are 
destroyed and re-generated when the brush is edited. It would still be possible 
to allow per-vertex multiple-selection until the brush is edited, when the 
highlighting would revert to showing the selected plane-points.
There may be other ways of achieving the objective.. this requires some
