Selected Sequence Range Not Available?

I’ve been searching for the sequence selection range in but it doesn’t seem to be available (loop range is available, though). Can anyone confirm this?

The only selection range accessible is the selection range from the sample editor.

It sounds like an idea to also add selection ranges for the sequencer and pattern matrix or at least add the .is_selected property to figure out whehter a sequence position or matrix block is indeed selected.

Is this still the case, or has it since been added?  

returns {0, 0} when nothing is selected
