I also tested code that displayed lengths/areas/angles on selection  
(and grabbing) of a single vertex. Found it far too confusing and  
cluttered, especially for angles and areas. With the commit I provided  
an analysis and suggestions for useful drawing of measurement stats  
(which nobody read apparently).

So for time being the current cvs code only displays the stats  
following the existing selection rules. That parts works, now the  

I know coders (these lazy asses! :) like to find the quickest hack  
possible and move on, but this is no release, so hopefully someone gets  
inspired to provide actual work on this area. If not, it is as Campbell  
says very easy to change. Don't need help for that. :)
