Well, this topic is not so clear cut. There are many factors:

- the relationship with vector apps, especially inkscape.
   we saw during the user scenario weekend that live update
   of linked-in svgs as they are saved by inkscape would fit
   a symbiosis between the two.

- yes, GIMP needs to be able to paint simple shapes, but
   we do not want to go overboard here with the variety of shapes.

- GEGL vs. vector, where is the dividing line when in the
   future with GEGL  everything added to the image remains
   modifiable and removable?

Somehow we need to find a balance here where trivial stuff
can be done in an obvious way within GIMP, we do not branch
out into specialised inkscape territory and come up with
something that fits the GEGL architecture.
