Yes, I almost forgot about that. I always considered the names so far as
working titles only.
What you suggest seems reasonable to me. (And the current GEGL modes
suggest that dropping the old modes is the intended route, anyway).
If that's how we do it, I'll need a little help, as I have no UI/Gtk
experience. Or maybe at least a pointer where to look at / which way to
go. I could imagine having two prebuilt menus which are swapped vs.
dynamically adding removing items. -- The toolbox dropdown for the
painting mode should probably never change.
(And if someone says, "hey that's easy, I'll do that in a couple of
minutes", please, don't let me stop you :) )
