Interesting idea.  I admit I hardly ever use quickmask because most
of the images I work with are grayscale, and if you paint with a soft
brush in the gray quickmask you can't tell where you selection starts.
So I have to switch to RGB mode first right now.

This makes me wonder if there should be separate sets of colours
stored for different painting modes, rather than a push/pop model.

If I change the colour in quickmask mode, e.g. to 50% gray, next time
I use quickmask it could go back to that.
