[Bf-committers] Proposal for sculpting on deformed mesh

It's an interesting idea, and it certainly covers the general case.
At the very least this seems worth having in Blender until a better
solution comes along.

However, at least for rigging applications it's pretty important to be
able to sculpt directly on the deformed mesh, at least for armature
deformations.  This is important for making corrective shape keys, for
Admittedly it's an under-constrained problem, but I think still solvable?

And dunno if this is within the scope of what you're doing, but I
would really, really like to see the "you can only sculpt on locked
shape keys" restriction removed.  That's _not_ an under-constrained
problem, since it's just simple vector addition between shape keys.
And being able to sculpt shape keys even with other shape keys active
would be great for sculpting face shapes, for example.

Anyway, good work.  For rigging purposes I feel like it's only a
stop-gap solution, though.
