Argh.. I am used to toggle between paintbrush and pencil. Like I pointed out
in my previous mail on this thread, I use the paintbrush as a "fine tuning"
tool together with the "real" tool I am drawing with. And if it is the
paintbrush, then there is no way to toggle fast between those.. clicking a
checkbox every time instead of pressing a shortcut key sounds clumsy.

Wasnt the path tool intended as a replacement for the current bezier tool
anyway? So it's button was only temporary until it was ready for use. Is it
alive anymore?
