Allow selecting multiple blocks in VISUAL mode

I sometimes want to highlight a large amount of text that spans multiple blocks. My normal method for this is to click at the beginning of what I want to select, scroll to the end, and then shift+click to select the range of text.

This currently works inside a single block, but if my text spans multiple blocks, instead of selecting the text, it just moves the cursor to the front of the block that I shift+clicked in. I notice that for a few milliseconds the text in the starting block is highlighted just before the cursor moves.

I’m not sure if this is a bug or a feature request, so I figured I’d start with feature request.
