I'm assuming there is no way to do this so raising it as an issue in
launchpad for the future.
Personally I think it is super useful to do.
- An extension should be able to pass back a set of ids for inkscape to
replaces as the current selection.

Inkscape signals to an extension that the user has selected one or

The inkex.py file looks for these and groups them under inkex.selected
for easy retrieval.
I want to change the user's selection in my extension (they pick one
path, I want to add to that selection).
I can see (thanks to perspective.py) how to tell a new inkscape process
which items are selected and that it should work on.
BUT I can't see how to signal back to the original inkscape my new set
of selected paths.
(I was hoping for a inkex.setselected() to match the inkex.getselected() )
How is it done, is there an example ?
