This is the difference between a tool and a plug-in. A tool is
something which (usually) operates locally on the basis of a
mouse click (the colour tools are the exceptions, which often
causes some confusion). A plug-in usually gets a copy of a 
drawable to work on, and doesn't have access to things like 
mouse click events which are captured and treated in the core.
