Some people desperately want a select-only mode back and while I
would prefer to have a coherent user interface, it is not impossible
to just reinstate a select-only mode, maybe simply in addition to
what we have.

A fourth option that has been suggested is that you would only move
stuff that has been selected in a previous step, i.e. you would not
click on a node, hold the mouse button and immediately move it;
instead you'd have to release the button to complete the select
action, then click again to initiate the move action.
