I think we should do that if we are willing to release 2.6 with the
polygonal tool in its current form. From what you say it seems as if you
think that would be fine, and personally I also think it will be better
to release 2.6 with a primitive Polygonal Select Tool rather than with
no such tool at all, and simply postpone further improvements on it to
2.8 or later if it does not happen in time for 2.6. Also, by putting the
tool in trunk we might even get some valuable ideas/opinions on the tool
which will be useful when it is being finalized. So let's ask Jimmac for
a tool icon.

I have some ideas for how to do the Free Hand/Polygonal Select merge,
but I'd rather await the UI team input before doing any changes.
