Hah, I just didn't think about those, but you're right : they do the
per-tool-presets job quite well.

Tool presets ui sucks a lot, but I'd say that all presets ui suck.
I mean : if you want to quickly switch between presets and tune them, you
have to keep a _lot_ of dockables on screen. Otherwise it is all switching
dockables, not to mention that you can't create a new
from the foo-editor : you have to go back to the selector and click the
"new" button,
which will bring you back to the editor.

The two available options are either a waste of space or a waste of time,
that sucks.
IMO, selectors and editors should really get merged, or editors should have
a selector widget at least.

I feel I'm going way off topic, but every presets UI enhancement seems
related to this bug.
