thx for the response.
> That info is not used by tools in Blender nor is it foreseen to be coded. I also think it's bad practices for tools to require that (especially when it's not visualized and not generic applicable).
I respectfully disagree with that. It could be useful for many purposes
to retrieve the selection order for an operation (e.g. hierarchical
parenting, drawing a curve through all objects).
The responses to my request here
and in particular this hack to make selection order available
demonstrates a generic interest in this feature.
Is it technically very difficult to implement it, so that it is
available via bpy.context.selected_objects? When someone here could
point me to the corresponding c-files, I would give it a try and check
it out for my own. Unfortunately, I haven't any experience with Blender
development right now.
