I wasn't suggesting to apply it on the fly but to apply it on the region
touched in one stroke of the tool. As far as I know that is also what PS
is doing.

It can still be a separate tool to the user. A lot of our tools are
internally very similar. Think of tools more than a way for a user to
select a certain set of parameters and algorithms. Even if the heal tool
is just the clone tool with an extra option, it can still be an extra
tool. Just like the Pencil tool is the same as the Paintbrush tool
internally, it only has one parameter set differently.
