Somebody came up with code and it looked cool, therefore it's in the
code base. Like Tito and similar to the N-Point-Transformation
tool while we have the Cage tool plus some other half-done features.
But hey, we dropped the Magic Scissors Tool and the performance of GIMP
master is near to unusable!

You sound like you have not been in the meeting in Leipzig where we
agreed on introducing a playground for UI and interaction experiments,
*including* new tools.

The scissory tool is simply disabled until somebody comes and ports
it to GEGL.

The performance of master near to unusable until somebody comes
and optimizes it.

As long as the 'Hack first' principle rules, the team will never reach
its own product vision, if anybody remembers that thing :-(

What was that again? Remind us.

Sad to see it go that way.

Sad to see rants like this, instead of help with improving things.
