Merge Selection is a tool for simply merging all objects currently selected.
It takes the process of merging down from `Set Selection -> Edit Mode -> Find Attach Button -> Attach` to just `Set Selection -> Merge Selection`.
This can save a tonne of time when working with many selections.
The tool currently works on Geometry and Splines.
