Multiple selection tools. There is always room for an alternative
way to make selections. There is no need to modify existing tools
if they are good. Just copy the code of an existing tool and
modify it.

Just a reminder: I would need that unirectangle selection tool.

That is very annoying because the new dialog window pops up at
the pointer. Unless in GIMP 2.0 new dialogs goes automatically to
a dock.

Sometimes closing the old one and opening a new one is totally
not wanted: it would be impossible to compare the color levels
of two images if only one level dialog can be open at a time.

I'm still using GIMP 1.2.3 but those problems could still be
present in GIMP 2.0 -- please verify yourself, I cannot do it.


About the path tool: could Shift (or any) be used to cycle
between modes? Would that reduce button-modifier-overloading?
The modes could sort theirself to the most-recently-used order,
in which case cycling starts always at the top mode. Cycling
would stop when modes has been selected for, e.g., 2 seconds
and would stop when user does something else than press the Shift.
