Pipe Tool History

Hi Nick, well the circles are deleted because they're just one stage of the scripted batch operation that the Pipe command performs.

The Pipe command is just basically a scripted set of actions that you could otherwise do manually, like drawing a circle, sweeping it along the path to make a tube, then drawing another smaller circle and sweeping it also to make a smaller tube if you have an inner radius, and then booleaning out the inner one from the outer one.

It would be kind of weird if a batch operation script like this would leave behind all of the objects from its intermediate calculations, because that would kind of clutter up your model with a lot of additional pieces that you would not really expect to see.
