Come to think about it, I don't think I've seen live updated path
strokes outside of vector programs either...

Still, I was curious as to what Matthew might have been referring
to, so I went to examine the Gimp path system again. I think he 
is referring not to Live update, but to the ability to apply 
strokes to Portions of the path before the full thing is finalized 
and then deleted. Basically, in Gimp, I can do this sequence:
- make a path segment
- apply stroke (path still there)
- continue the path
- apply stroke (path still there)
- undo the last stroke and edit that one portion of the path if 
the stroke came out wrong, then apply stroke again
- eventually, go back to previous portions of the path, though 
obviously you can't undo early path strokes unless you delete 
everything that came before

Maybe Matthew wants a command that allows you to apply a stroke 
before finishing the path. Maybe hitting "space" or the likes to 
allow him to apply a stroke on the go, while leaving the path
intact. This would also allow, as he had said, for a user to 
"repeatedly stroke the same path." It sounds reasonable. 
Matthew, can you confirm this is what you had in mind?
