(Please don't take this as trolling!)
So, today i was making some quick images for a presentation, when i decided i wanted to draw some circles in one of them. As the nice Gimp user i am, i thought "ok, that's a job for Inkscape...", and then i suddenly realise there's no Inkscape installed on that machine. "Hm, let me download it... hmmm... nopes, no internet connection".
"So, Gimp's all i got. I know Gimp can make circles. But how is it? I remember it's something with the selection tool... hmmmm...", i take some chances filling a selection and all that, but i just can't remember what goes next... and then i just gave up, made some ugly circles with a pen.
The point of that story is: i used to turn my back on the people who complained "hey, Gimp doesn't have a shape drawing tool!", replying that "That's Inkscape's job", and sending them a link to the Gimp tutorial... but... ermm... really, why, oh why can't Gimp have a basic shape drawing tool?
I'm not talking about full drawing support (that's for Inkscape), but just some tool which will automatically do the "select-fill-shrink-cut" steps so the user don't need to memorize it. That'd be very handy.
PS: I don't know if i'll file a bug about that because i know probably 2,000 people already did that, so...
