I like this idea. Perhaps if the GUI could better indicate the
relationship between the selected tool-group and the list of tools
below, people would actually have a chance to understand this concept
without the need to explain it to them.

What I dislike about your mockup is the fact that you overload widgets
with functionality using the three mouse-buttons. This hides important
functionality and is thus unacceptable for a user interface that is
supposed to be as intuitive as possible.
