I think that was agreed :-). In which case, can we drop the polyline
tool? Even in 1.6.1 I can pretty well draw polylines just as easily with
the path tool (and then I gain them being editable).

That's the impression I got. As long as I can drag around the layers,
I've no objection, probably it is as people say an improvement.

Replying to your other e-mail: yes, we will definitely want nice
presets. Otherwise I think consolidation is OK; really everything is a
superset of the 'super-polygon' brush anyway.

Collapsing is how I would go. I don't mind having shape generators
(though I think they should generate paths, that can then be edited),
but grouping them under the path "toolbox" rather than making Krita look
like a flowcharting program would be nice.
