Description

Support connection creation like this:
  1. Press first (left) mouse button down on start terminal
  2. While holding the mouse button down, drag mouse to second terminal
  3. Release first mouse button

This should create a connection between the selected terminals as is normally done by clicking on two terminals.

Note that one cannot end a connection in a new flag like this to prevent user from accidentally ending the connection in a flag all the time by still pressing ALT when releasing the first mouse button.
