I agree here, 1024x768 is way too large for default.

I think there should at least be a set of much larger brushes, both
solid and soft, something like 30, 50, 100, 200, 300

I think is should be turned on by default. The reason is that it is much
less work to reset the tool options than to re-configure them as they
were. If a user does a lot of changes to the tool options, it is easier
to fix "Ah crap, it saved my tool options, I want them reseted." than
"Ah crap, all my precious tool options adjustments didn't get saved!".
