i am trying to think of a case where i have a selection and i am trying
to move a path and i cannot come up with one.
i have had problems where i wanted the tool to move either a selection
or a path and it was set to move layers. the little bit of frustration
is not worth it to me to change the behavior of the tool for.
Edit/Undo is always there for these things without complicating the gui
even more in the name of simplicity.
just my opinion,
