Need help with testing global selections

Isn't this a nice feature? ;)
It is a "side-effect" of working with activation of masks. It can be explicitly disabled, but I thought it might be interesting for artists. You can see what actually happens on "deselect" by activating a "show root layer" option. It just deactivates a mask. And "reselect" activates last non-activated mask.

I wonder, what do artists think about using "Reselect" as "activate previous selection"?

If it is too confusing for artists, I can easily fix it to work as usual.

I've just fixed the Deselection bug [0]. But it demanded some changes done to the selection masks' code, so it would be really cool, if someone tested the code before I merge it into master. May I ask you to help me with it?

What needs to be tested:
1) Selecting: global selections and local selections
2) Deselecting the global selection
3) Reselecting the global selection
4) Undo/Redo of this thing

There is one strange thing. When I do this:

- select something
- deselect
- select something else

Then I can continue to do reselect and it will switch between both previous selections.
