Enable quick-swapping current tool with Selection tool while holding a key

One really nice feature from other design software that is missing in Figma is the the ability to swap the active tool with the Selection tool while holding a key (CMD or CTRL for mac and pc respectively). As I work I often need to create several of the same type of layers consecutively, but also manipulate them as I go. Being unable to hotswap to the Selection tool while holding a key means I have to escape the tool make a change and then re-enter the tool, slowing the workflow with excessive keypresses.

Please implement the Selection tool hotswap while holding [platform appropriate key].
