Quote Selected feature

Perhaps this has been mentioned before but what about having a "quote selected" feature on BYOAC?

I have seen this feature on other forums and it's incredibly convenient.

For those that don't know what I'm referring to...it allows you to highlight a members' words, hit "quote selected" and it allow you to only reply to that selected text.

Saves a lot of time when replying to long posts and you only want to reference a small portion.
If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

  Good news:
There is a related SMF mod here.

  Bad News:
1.  Saint is cautious about adding mods since they can cause security and compatibility issues.

2.  The mod doesn't list SMF 2.0.3 as compatible. (possible documentation oversight by the moddev)   :dunno

Compatible With:
    1.1.18, 1.1.19, 1.1.20, 1.1.21, 2.0.1, 2.0.4, 2.0.5, 2.0.6, 2.0.7, 2.0.8, 2.0.9, 2.0.10

Strange, it doesn't list it as compatible with 2.0.3, but it does list it in the instructions. And it does IN FACT work. I installed it just a bit ago on /localhost with XAMPP using SMF 2.0.3 just to see, and yep... works great.
