I should've done this __very__ earlier on the dev. cycle. But the fact
is that I think developers should seriopusly consider the visibility
of the "scissors tool" on the tool box.
I mean - it is a good hack, it is there for historical reasons, and
the graphic algorithyms behind it are nice for paper presentations
But nowadays, who seriously uses it?
The fact is that it "doesn't deliver" the functionality it should,
and is simply awkard. The new Vectors interface from GIMP 2.0 allows
one to do with vectors what the Scissors tool should be doing, only
it is easier to use, and to figure out how to use.
That said, I raise the question: Should the scissors tool be visible
by default in the toolbox?
