Description

At the moment to select multiple elements using the selectable plugin user has to hold Ctrl button. If its needed to enable multiple selection by default, developers has to use a hack with overriding event.metaKey on mouse down event. It would be nice to have an option instead to enable multiple selection even if the Ctrl is not pressed.

This will be considered when the selectable rewrite happens.

Is there some kind of estimate on when that will be done? This feature is much wanted.

I made a simple fix to this by adding a new option that defaults to the old behaviour. https://github.com/jquery/jquery-ui/pull/504
