Ah might be Raving Jason would have had word with you, he is my colleague he
told me on skype today to do the same, return false from that method,

But that will permanently disable it I am just looking some way to enable
disable this when ever developer want using some api at Qt level or
somewhere else. May be would like to have implementation like
shouldChangeSelectedDOMRange as in OSX.
