At first i have to note, that the usage of the current path tool in Gimp 
is a pain. Its really hard, needlessly complicated  to work with. The 
behavior of Inkscape is way superior, even if it is not perfect. Also it 
is hard to manage multiple paths at once. I won't say that Gimp is 
missing a feature you could use for the same things, but i just don't 
want to use it, since it takes me longer to work with it as Skipping 
back and forth between Inkscape and Gimp... (not a good sign for useability)
