How is that close? The UI has to be refactored to use that API as well,
which is 80% of the work. It's a large job, and none of the code in bug
even touches upon that. You also have to solve the problem of
translating tool mouse movements into API calls efficiently.

It's pretty rude to imply that something is easy when you haven't even
taken the time to actually think through how much work is involved.
