I've suggested this before and some staff members have said they plan to add this feature, but looking at 1.7's features I thought this would be a good time to bring it up again.  Smooth curves are great most of the time, but when you want something to look hand-drawn, you usually need it to be a bit rough.  I think many illustrators would benefit from a roughening tool; it would allow illustrators to make non-uniform curves more easily than having to draw each node individually.

As it is, it's really hard to produce a line that doesn't look uniform, and a roughening tool to add pseudorandom midpoint displacement would make illustrating much less time-consuming.

Last I heard, the plan was to have a brush-type tool that would allow the roughening effect to be "rubbed over" a curve.  I think that's is a great idea, but even something as simple as Inkscape's Fractalize feature would be sufficient for many illustrators' purposes.
