It could also just be done on right-click. No tool required. It would give the pumpkin a face and make orange dye a little easier to get. I like.
You punch precise holes into the pumpkin with your fists? It's fine to punch down trees but the arm is too blocky to carve a pumpkin by hand.
EDIT: Also, bump. I edited the topic. EDIT notes: Changed method of eating to pumpkin soup. I got that brainwave thinking of the pumpkin soup I had last night.
