I'd love to be able to drag out from any input/output connection while holding down a modifier key and get a filtered version of the 'Add Tool' popup menu.
Example: drag from the output of any 3d tool and get a list of only the tools that it can logically connect with.

Alternatively, right-click and drag from the output to an empty area on the flow for that filtered menu (similar to right-click and dragging from an output to an existing node to get a popup list of available inputs)

I'm borrowing thumbs from a couple mates.
Always handy to have a spare thumb for various reasons.
(Like upping it, hitting it with a hammer, putting it........nooooo!)
