Selection Tool for selecting SHAPES instead of STROKES

I am posting this in Feature Requests, because as far as I know this is not possible:
I would like she Selection Tool to select exactly the shape I draw with lasso tool, and not all the brush strokes that fall under this selection. In classical animation this is crucial to be able to cut/paste/manipulate parts of a drawing by selecting exactly what I want and not all the strokes that the Lasso accidentally touches.
Essentially the Selection Tool would just cut all strokes at the marquee, like the Eraser does.
Currently my workflow is really suffering because of this - each time I want to select a piece of drawing, I need to make sure and be careful to go around all these strokes I don’t want to be selected.
Unless… it is possible to do somehow?
thanks
