I've made silly suggestions before, but allow me to try again. 

How about new brushes that take a parameter. Wether they are invoked
with a different keyword, or just by the new name I dont' know which
is easier.

Brushes like the default round ones should become aliases that are
specified in a global brush-alias file. 

So the systemwide, default brush-alias file specifies among others:

        17circle circle(17)

so "circle" is the NEW name of the parametrized brush that has one
parameter (in this case "17").
