What driver are you speaking about?
The code to use a LUT to map brush pressure to a more sophisticated curve
is already in the paint_core (only #ifdef out). Look for the FANCY_PRESSURE
define. Actually this is not what we want...

Currently Mitch is working on the previews and selection dialogs for data
objects. IMHO there is a need for at least two more things to think about:
- A cache mechanism to avoid holding all the data objects in memory.
- A mechanism to select different data from the same object depending
on paint_core parameters (like the brush-pipe we have now, only more
general). This does not imply that all data has to be stored on disk
as pixmaps, it could also be the result of applying a transformation
on pixmap data or could even be completely calculated (think generated
The paint_core should be changed to work with abstract data objects
instead of distinguishing between brushes, patterns, textures and
images. While this might be a good way of sorting things for the user,
there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to paint with an image, using
a pattern as texture. The paint_core doesn't really need to know the
