I think the path view will give you some details about the cumulative distance travelled by scrolling the cursor to each point on the path.
Here's an example I was thinking of: you mark your start point with a specific label and then go off hiking all over the countryside. Some time later you might want to know how far it is from your current location straight back to the start point (or any other point you have given a special label). Maybe there could be another "view" with a table of distances from the current location to the user-labelled points.
