Lightroom 5.2 SDK: selection change callback not called by change in most selected photo.

referring to LrDialogs.presentFloatingDialog

Most plugins that care what's selected also care what's most selected. Not having a callback when most selected changes takes a lot of the fun out of it (you have to implement selection change detection by constant polling which makes the callback feature essentially useless).

PS - I would love to be able to hook up to a selection change callback even from a background task or whatever (i.e. not necessarily a floating dialog) - for example, to track user selections in various sources and automatically restore when user changes sources.
