I am not against it, just against forcing people to always have to switch
tools (rather than being "able" to).

I would dislike if I had a different tool for every image. I *never*
needed that (but I often needed it the other way round). I guess (but of
course can't answre that) that this is the rule and not the exception.

Yes, you are forced to switch tools in your scheme when you were not in
the other, and vice versa.

Neither way is perfect, so just changing this is a very very bad
idea. I also think that making this a preferences option is a very bad
idea. Designing a sensible UI for seperated/combined is, IMHO, ery
important.

I disagree.

I think I can understand the idea ;) It's just that I almost always have
many images open, and want to use the same tool for all of them.
