OK, I'll repeat it once again: The new tool was an approach to design a
better path tool taken by Simon Budig. The goal was to exchange the user
interface of the BezierSelect tool when it becomes useable. Simon didn't
find the time to complete it and noone else did. There's no need to
discuss which path tool should make it into 1.2, since there is only one
that is working. You are too late if you want to change this now!
The Path tool will not be in Gimp-1.2. Same applies to the Xinput Airbrush
unless someone fixes it really quick now (I see a small chance for the
Xinput Airbrush to be fixed in time since its a standalone tool).
