In AutoCAD and IntelliCAD products this is called window selection. My humble suggestion is that when selecting objects via a selection window by clicking left-to-right, the edges of the selection window appear as solid lines, and only objects wholly inside the selected window are chosen. When objects are selected via a selection window by clicking right-to-left, the edges of the selection window appear as dotted lines, and objects wholly inside the selection window AND objects that cross the selection window are selected.

Or perhaps make the window behavior changeable by the user
END EDIT======================

Just my two cents worth.

This method of selecting objects is very handy for moving and stretching objects.
