Yeah... Paths as global objects is just an implementation artefact of 
Photoshop, as far as I can tell. I've heard from enough photoshop users that 
they are always getting confused about that. So in Krita paths are on a 
layer, and you can have multiple layers with paths & filter them and so on.

There are people, working on a better psd filter. We're concentrating on 
openraster & getting Krita functionally ready. No doubt libpsd, when done and 
acceptable license-wise (the author uses the Adobe sdk which is expressly 
forbidden by Adobe), can be used in a Krita filter plugin.
