[Bf-committers] Cheap Tweak Mode

The objection I have is ergonomical and also to keep things  
blender-compliant... that kind of editing was banned from blender since  
the beginning. Holding a mouse button while doing an action and have it  
stop working on a button-release is just *bad*. The muscle stress of  
holding button is the #1 reason for people to get injuries.

The current "tweak" mode in Blender allows to skip that stress, by  
replacing the 'release' with another action. This can either be left  
mouse, spacebar, enter... which is more precise anyway (it is how  
muscles work; contraction is more exact than relaxing). You can find  
adoption for such methods in other UIs too.
