The gui problem 

The cursor becomes a lot more managable for drawing
 when it slowly moves the pen tip.
That is, the amount of motion to move the pen a little bit
 must be larger for drawing than for pointing. 
If you miss while pointing thats no big deal you correct and get there.
With drawing you want control as you draw
 so the pen object needs to move much slower than the cursor.

This is not too hard (for a developer) to do.
