Some times, after a "Merge Shape Components", if I want to select again 1 sub-path of a path again, using the path selection tool (not the direct selection tool), it would be useful to add a Split Shape Components option (see image)

It is no that easy because "merge" is a destructive operation so might end up with different result when you split it. You can only split (closed) paths from each other.

I could do a script for it. But I could do a lot of things. The question is whether it worth my time. Also, there will be new script technology next year so I don't want to write something that would be needed to rewrite. It would be nice to see whether more people want this feature.
