Hi, Andi-

I thought this was a good idea then, and I think it's a good idea now. 

As a related idea, I would also like to see an API to access that part of a
path segment that was clicked/mousedover/etc., when the event target is a
path or a poly. A use case is when a shape is being drawn or edited, and you
want to split the path at that section, or when the directionality of the
click is relevant (say, NSEW).
