I use this feature extensively in an app where there is card that has 
objects that users can select to change properties (line width, color, 
font, etc) and at the top of the window is a toolbar with font menu, 
etc. I don't want the user to be able to select the toolbar controls and 
accidentally delete them or alter them, so I use the cantSelect property 
on those.
