Aside from the fact that I still stand by thinking stroke placement
should be lowest on the painting hierarchy and not highest (like it is
now), why should I have to hit space? What reason is there to not stroke
the segment immediately? (Again, I'm only talking about /lines/, not
'actual paths' i.e. beziers.)
The path stuff currently being talked about, on the other hand, sounds
cool and exciting :-).

Nope. The "repeatedly stroke" thing only applies to H/V constraints,
because then you are not actually drawing lines, just ignoring one axis
of movement. This is best described with reference to "airbrushing"; you
can linger over portions of the line, jiggle the cursor repeatedly over
part of it, etc. It's not often useful, but I use it some times, and
it's "free" with the H/V constraint (which *is* useful) anyway.
If you can read this, you're too close.
