I don't think you need a new program or do a lot of hacking. All you
need is to configure some more keyboard shortcuts than what GIMP comes
with preconfigured. Then press F11 for fullscreen mode and start
drawing.  I suggest you use the 2.1 development version since it
allows to bind a lot more functions to keyboard shortcuts (or other
input devices).  I think all of the functions you listed are already
available. If there is stuff missing that you need, tell us about it.
