Is there some way in Mathematica 6 to use a Locator so as to create a 
continuous-appearing "trail" after you click and then drag the cursor 

Of course one could write code allowing addition of points through 
successive clicks, and then one could try to click repeatedly on 
successive points very near one another, but that could get very tedious.

I mean the sort of thing one gets in drawing programs (and with the 
Mathematica 6 2D Drawing Tools).
