Help for mouse users: extend selection word-by-word

Please provide "select-and-extend-word-by-word" (strictly, element-by-element) via the mouse, like you can already do via Ctrl+Shift+RightArrow. This would be invoked by double-click-and-hold-then-drag, which currently does nothing.

Note: this new feature does not affect any existing functionality - those who don't want it won't even notice it. Those who do will appreciate it.

Note that element-by-element selection via the mouse is already available in every other code editor I can find, every word processor, every text box on a web page, the Delphi Prism code editor in VS, and even Delphi's own TEdit.
