RadioGroup allows empty selection (0.8.2)

WillP-2

I have noticed that the RadioGroup class will allow there to be no selected
item when the currently selected item is clicked - the changeSelected event
has no item in it's data property as the group has an empty selection.

While I can see that this appears deliberate and an initial state of "no
selection" would make sense I have never yet encountered a UI in which the
user can select an item in a RadioGroup and can then make the group have no
selection by clicking the selected item.

I believe that once a RadioGroup selection has been made it should never
allow the de-selection of the current item to render an empty selection.

At the very least a property to switch the behaviour to either support an
empty selection or not would be a good feature.

I would value any comments on this.

Thanks,

Will
