Use Pipette Tool to put item/recipe/tile ghosts in cursor. Ghost is a normal ghost, and can be placed on the ground and put into the quickbar to attach the item without needing the item or going through the selection gui. (can also quick-select logistics requests and count, without digging through the selection gui)

Per-Player Setting to use the Pipette Tool input (linked control), or "none" to have a separate input. Also a toggle to enable/disable tile-picking (compatibility tweak for Cursor Enhancements).

Why? I was using construction bots to build things, and did not have the items on me and did not want to put the items in the quickbar over and over, nor pick them up from my base and ghost-place from inventory.

Known conflict: if a quickbar number is on the same key, the ghost-to-cursor works, but then the shortcut number triggers and will select something or clear the cursor

I have quickbar 1 bound to the same key as pipette (q), and clear cursor to 1. Conflict :(
