Hi All.
Im not sure If I have missed the point.

Ctrl Click dosent seem to do a thing, if sombody would like it to then 
go ehead and add it.

Okay- Add a menu item as well as a keyboard shortcut, no prob there?

2nd.. The set_active_base(base) Is DEFINETLY needed since the 
make_parent() func uses all non active selected objects as children. and 
the activer as the parent.

The rationale for adding parenting/clear parenting was that often I need 
to mess around withe the object hierarchy and when I select objects in 
the OOPS view and then need to go into the 3d view to activate one 
(which was the last one I clicked on in the OOPS window anyway) And then 
Parent them in the 3d window.
Why not do it all in the OOPS
