One option would be to have just one function, but pass it boolean
indicating if it's the first application or a redo. That way it's easy to
surround the selection management with "if (reapply)"

This seems to combine the best of both proposals. No encoring code
duplication, but still easy to have reapply-specific code paths such as
selection management.
