This does 90% of what I want.

(defun mouse-drag-region-no-move-point (start-event)
  "Calls mouse-drag-region but without moving the point."
  (interactive "e")
  (save-excursion (mouse-drag-region start-event)))

(global-set-key [down-mouse-1] 'mouse-drag-region-no-move-point)

Yay!  This is a significant improvement for me.  Working with
double-click for words and tripple-click for lines would be nice but
more complicated.
