I ran into this problem when I needed node-selection (as in: choose the 
parent) for clipper.module

Back then , I designed and thought of another widget for this, one that I 
never (obviously ;) ) made into real code... 
However, I just made my notes and the mockup into a post @ webschuur.com:  

Hope it explains itself there.
