Just wanted to mention this since it appears if you haven't noticed it:

You can already now do what you are asking for:
1. Make an arbitrary selection
2. Select -> To Path
3. Use the Path Tool to edit the created path
4. Select -> From Path

The Polygonal Select Tool should IMO only fill the void of a way to
quickly make polygonal selections. (If it will even be a separate tool
and not just en enhancement to the Free Select Tool.)
