Yah, I didnt dare to touch loop code yet... it's a hog. :)
Fortunately, now we have proper edge and face selection awareness in  
Blender, we can make the tools simpler.

- I prefer no sublooping for select anymore, but directly allow a  
loop-selection on a mouseclick.
- Based on selection (like rows of edges, faces) you then invoke the  
looping tools, like loopcut for example. Wings has more nice editing  
options we can look at, like the 'slide' tool which moves a selected  
row of edges to the left/right row of edges.
