If you have a graphics tablet (like the cheap Wacom Graphire), you actually
have three distinct pointers in X: your mouse, the tip of the pen, and the 
eraser end of the pen. It should be possible to associate each of these 
pointers with a specific tool. For instance, the mouse with freehand select,
the stylus with brush and the eraser with smudge. That gives you three active 
tools -- select, brush and eraser.

Ha, yes! Of course -- and one that can use gradients and patterns. There's
already rectangular fill, but that code isn't usable for anything else. This 
is something that needs to be developed together with non-rectangular select, 
I guess.

Cool -- it's your feature, then :-). Any progress on the iterator?

Double-plus cool!

I think Adrian is our man :-).

I'm not sure, but I guess I should just ask David Faure directly, since he's 
closest to the fire.
