Is ListView missing a selectionEnabledProperty?

This already exists as a tweak request here:

I haven't yet targeted it to Lombard as my primary focus at present is 
bug fixing, but I'm happy to work with anyone willing to develop a 
patch. It should be relatively trivial - add to the SelectionMode enum 
the NONE value, and add the relevant conditional checks throughout the 
subclasses of the MultipleSelectionModel class.
