Is there a way to get the old style Select Model Elements back?

The old (Ver 0.9?) had a select models elements that went into a pick mode similar to how Rhythm’s Pick Model Elements behaves. But it had a significant advantage with the selection input being saved for subsequent dynamo players uses. the new drag-click doesn’t allow for the granularity needed for complex dynamo scripts.

Is there a petition or something I can sign on to try and get this feature reinstated?
