[Bf-committers] Proposal for sculpting on deformed mesh

Yep, i understood that applying sculpting through armature is important for
artisis, i think it's possible -- will try to implement after bconf. Also
will investigate question related to shape keys.
Btw, armature could be handled if it's applied on basemesh (without any
modifiers between base and armature) and if it's applied directly on
multires. In other cases it can't be handled correct.
So there is still problem with most of modifiers, which could be enabled in
sculpt mode.

what to do: enable sculpting on armatured/shapekeyed mesh
still not sure how should work: how other modifiers should be handled.
should them be simply disabled in sculpt mode, or approach with some kind of
cage (which could be enabled/disabled) would be more useful?
