Tool-assisted selection disambiguation


There’s a bug report[1] which complains that every time you attempt to drag a track corner it asks you which track (when of course they share the same corner).

The SELECTION_TOOL shouldn’t know about this kind of stuff, though, so I propose to add a client filter to SELECTION_TOOL::RequestSelection().

Something along the lines of:

SELECTION_TOOL::RequestSelection( int aFlags, 
                                  std::function<void(GENERAL_COLLECTOR&)> aClientFilter )

[2] The SanitizeSelection() routines might also be candidates for moving to this architecture.
