Thinking some more about this, a "switch to highest in the stack 
layer with non-zero alpha at pointer location", option, triggered 
on button/pen-down before drawing is actually executed could 
do the trick while been least intrusive in GIMP.

It would be a bit like the Pick_a_layer_or_guide option of the 
Move tool, allthough it might be of advantage to stay on the 
last painted on layer, not jumping back to the previous layer 
selection.
