paths previously any of this path operations:
Booleans, Stroke to paths, Object to paths, Combine and Break Apart.
The cuestion is simple:

preference section and can be change by the user, but we are speaking
about the default behabiour.
A: Convert to path clones and apply the operation
B: Retain clones in this operatios ignoring the operation
