I know what the _magnetic_ lasso tool does. I think you mis-remembered what 
Select Freehand does. It is not the selectbrush, but actually what photoshop 
calls the lasso. Perhabs we should rename "Select freehand" to "select 
outline" or something

The magnetic lasso (when we implement it) we could then call the "Select 
magnetic outline"
