I am not sure. I have never had problems with the long menu and I think
that the separators help a lot to understand the paint modes. The
two-column layout doesn't provide this information and it even seems to
suggest that there's some relationship between modes that are shown on
the same row.
IMO this change would be a regression but I might be convinced that it
is an improvement.
