What the handles do in the tool?
In some other editor, the rectangle can be modified only by
grabbing the 8 handles located at the corners and at the
middle of edges. (That is an unnecessary limitation.)
The handles may confuse users if really the grabbing can be done by
clicking in anywhere on the edge. (That is the preferred way to do it
since the first interactive graphics system was written.)
The handles should be removed.
