Hi there,

Recently I and Hollykaz discussed about Blender's sculpt tool. He has
made some of great works with this tool(for example:
http://blender.jp/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=301 ), and work with
Zbrush as a freelance 3D artist. He said, Blender's sculpt tool has been
greatly improved (Thank you Brecht and Matt!), so he want to use it for
his serious work, but Blender lacks an useful and needed funcion -
Rotating view with tablet pen.

This function is, when user draw(or drag) from where no object displayed
in, view is rotated instead draw brush. He said other sculpt tools, such
as ZBrush and Silo's sculpt mode have this function, so if it's added to
blender, then more users of them may migrate to (or use) blender, and of
course, it may improve the workflow of Durian project.

I know blender has a mouse gesture function(2.5 has not yet), but I
don't think users use the mouse gesture in Sculpt mode.

Please consider it.
