Hmm.it does now - the patcjh for it has been comited some months ago -
but, it doe slittle- not very usefull without a callibration curve
and a way to smooth down the time coordinates, just as the paint tool

Ok - there is a velocity setting on the animated brushes, so we broke
the recursion...we just need a volunteer to factor out the ink tool
use of it, and implement a velocity calibration curve for the
