Right now, one needs to click on the edge of the polygon. This is rather inconvinient, because a) you have to aim hard and b) if you don't see the whole polygon and you click on the adjacent boundary between two you don't really know which ones nodes you've just activated.

Example (guess which polygon's nodes are activated): http://gis-lab.info/images/screenshots/20110417-87o-14kb.jpg

One should be able to click inside the polygon and have nodes selected.

Same issue when you want to delete a part of a multipart polygon, see my comment on #3770:

To delete a part of a multipolygon, you have to click on one of its vertices, which might be a problem if you have a set of contiguous (parts of) polygons).
