I'm writing to complain about the Path Tool. Sorry if this has been
brought up before; I haven't checked the archives or anything. Also,
if this should go in the -devel ml, just poke me and I'll move the
The path tool is pitifully lacking in features. One is unable to
select points by dragging a box around them, you can't split selected
points into a new path, the lines are not rendered dynamically, the
path 'layers' are too independent from the other layers.

* Render paths dynamically.
* Give each separate path options for how it should be rendered
(width, color, cap style, etc. Basically the stuff in the Stroke Path
* Add more tools for working with paths (split, join, drag-to-select,
select a whole sub-path, invert selection, etc. etc.)
