The defaultTool is a plugin, actually. And there are many, many other tools:
commenttool, simpleentrytool, musictool, artistictexttool, texttool, connectiontool, guidestool, charttool, gradienttool, penciltool, patterntool, calligraphytool, interactiontool, pathtool, pantool, interactiontool... the list is open, because it's a plugin system, so we cannot even really control what will be visible in krita.
