Vidalia allows that, and that's one thing we at Tails will be missing when we remove it. The main use case is debugging potentially buggy or malicious exit nodes. For example, you get an unexpected HTTPS or SSH warning, write down the info about your exit node, and close that circuit to get a fresh one and confirm your suspicions.

Good idea. I've been meaning to expand stem's client usage tutorial with an example of manual path selection (#8728), but this would be a great feature to include in arm too.

Will definitely try to slip it into the next release (... whenever I get back to it).

Another use case would be to try to get pass connection failures on chat servers or websites which might ban an IP but not all exit nodes. Like OFTC does for me lately...
