The Tool Options of the Pencil and Paintbrush are identical... the
unique difference is that Pencil don't have antialiasing... so, hard edges.
This is the concept of Pencil tool... to have, a Paintbrush with a
hard-edge option is an option... but, if you can a tool with
hard-edge... you need also the Hardness disabled... for me it seems a
The Paintbrush with hard edge, no antialising, is necessary to have the
Hardness disabled... so, when I choose hard-edge option (alias Pencil),
the hardness must appears faded (off).
I prefer to maintain the Pencil... and to cut only the hardness
parameter of tool options... the Pencil tool is a classic. The unique
equivocated option in the tool options is the Hardness.
The idea about, if I have understood well, to have not-antialiasing in
the brush... it seems a bit strange for me, essentially because we can
do it using hard-edge stains... normally I use the Pencil tool to create
these stains. Normally, if you have a hard-edge stain, and you need a
bit more soft stain... we can use the hardness slider and also a curve
in the paint dynamics to control the hardness.

This sounds like a great option. As CR says, if the only difference is
that one parameter, then it makes sense.
