As a side note: we have already 2 editbars (advanced+default), we could
'just add' these to current default one. And not adding a full toolbar,
but one of those little dropdown buttons? As I do not think you will
switch between types a lot during a digitizing session? (plz correct me
if I'm wrong).

GUI-wise: we collect a lot of edit tools already. Somebody has an idea
to keep this all tidy and clear?

I was thinking if all the edit tools maybe should become a 'panel'
instead of a toolbar? On which you have some presets/checkboxes to have
either 'simple' edits, 'advanced', 'cad', 'shapes'.
Maybe the labeling buttons could be added to that panel too?
