And in my opinion, this is a 80% done feature that should not be 
simply called "useless" and disregarded.

I myself had never missed such a toolbar, but as well, I am not a 
tablet user.

I would agree that it imight be too late for consideration for 2.6, 
and of course we just can't just go bloating the UI, but I think 
shuch a toolbar would be highly praised and the UI team shoudl take a 
look at it.   Moreover, once configurable, it could keep the most 
used tool icons, making the toolbox really optional, which is one of 
the ains of the whole set of UI large changes for 2.6.
