Actually that list or grid of tools is only there because it was so
trivial to add. It's nothing but a completly generic view on the
container of GimpToolInfo objects. As it stands it isn't particulary
useful. Perhaps it could be extended to become a toolbox editor where
you can show/hide tool buttons in the toolbox or rearrange them or
reconfigure the tool shortcuts. I don't think it should ever become a
toolbox replacement. It was never designed to be that and it would be
quite tricky to make it one.
