[Bf-committers] 3D Cursor and Border Select

Maybe this was lost to time, but during 2.5 development there was a plan 
was to implement a new keymap, and it included changing select to 
left-click, and set 3D cursor to shift+right-click:


That design was written by William Reynish. Unfortunately, I don't think 
he's had much involvement with Blender development for a year and a half.

Oh, and I agree with all the stuff that's been iterated in this thread: 
LMB for selection is a nearly universal paradigm, and eschewing it 
confuses beginners and hinders adoption; Blender's schizophrenic use of 
LMB and RMB in different contexts is untenable; and assigning an 
infrequently used function (settings the 3D cursor) to LMB (easily the 
most frequently used binding in other programs) is a very puzzling 
design decision.
