Change/alternate behavior when clicking connected item body in connection list

With current behavior, clicking the body of a connected item in the connection list removes the connection, and opening requires clicking a small expansion icon on the far-right of the item. This is not intuitive. Think it would be better if this behavior was reversed, so clicking the connected item body opened the linked item pop-up, and removing a connection required actually clicking the checkbox to uncheck. Behavior could also be a user preference.
