Hmmm...ok...Maybe "there is more than a way to use the GIMP".:-)
Of course I would not have suggested that it I worked in the way you 

So, here is my idea: we postpone this 121331 for 2.2 , and instead of 
automatically picking opacity with the color picker, change the GIMP 
in a way that thre is a current opacity, choosen as the alpha 
component of the current foreground color, and therefore, updated by 
the color picker. And in each paint tool, let there be added a 
checkbox that will make The GIMP use that tool opacity slider value 
or the Current Opacity, selected with the foreground color.

What do you say Sven?
And others, do you like the idea?

This is too much for 2.0 right now, anyway.
