Myself, I would use it for nearly every non-symmetrical brush (and
wish for the ability to v- or h-flip it, too), particularly when I'd
just copied something and was using the clipboard brush. Every brush
that is remotely 'directional' needs this
(or, possibly the option to rotate the brush to match the movement
direction -- that would work fairly well much of the time.)

Making aspect ratio controls independent of brush type also makes
sense to me.  "hardness' also makes sense independent of brush type
(hardness specifying the middle point of a curve, 0 would be a linear
curve, .5 would be a gamma-ish curve where  a majority of midpoint
values become much more opaque, -.5 would be a gamma-ish curve where a
majority os midpoint values become  much less opaque.

I may be getting a little OT, I believe that those controls do not
belong in the VBR brush editor.
