[Qgis-developer] Do we need a single select map tool?

-1 : but change the default tool

Users might be used to the select single feature tool and miss it. 
While it's possible for somebody to get used to new interaction designs 
it's an effort and it's not where you want to spend your time worrying.
Second - and more important - The selection tools are already collapsed 
and an additional button there is only shown on demand and not always. 
Therefore the visual clutter impact is minimal. I would rather spend 
the effort on removing / collapsing buttons on the UI which are always 
visible but hardly ever used than tools which may be redundant but are 
only a slight annoyance.

Best regards,
