my guess is that they planned to have these tools, and the book was
written. then, for what ever reason, the tools were left out of the
final version. The same tools are prolly found somewhere else, through
menus or dialogs.
the 1.3 gimp has inspired many discussions on what is a "tool" and what
isn't. it seems like artists and coders have different ideas on this.
there are many new tool buttons in the 1.3 version, but rumor has it
that some of those will be removed from the toolbox before it is over.
i don't know that the book actually has you use these left out tools.
