Hi, this is not really an improvement, it might as well be a popup  
anyway. The idea of the operator properties is so that you *don't*  
have to confirm or make choices with every tool that you use. If you  
don't need to change any settings you can keep on working without  
being forced to go through the steps like a 'wizard'. One thing I  
brought up at winter camp though, is that it might be good to have a  
consistent shortcut key that immediately sends focus to the first  
field of the operator properties. This would still be non-blocking,  
but faster to access.
