To make edge length usefull we should have it draw the length for edhes 
with 1 vert selected. then extruding a poly line with 1 very will show 
usefull info- ATM you need to select both and scale which is a pain.
There is some code that needs to be changed from e->v1Sel && e->v2Sel 
... to || (or), that will fix it.
