... isn't that what the brush outline is for? Or do I
happen to have default settings that are different
from the rest?

Say... is it only in Ubuntu that the -Default- settings
include [ and ] for brush resize? Because that's what I
do right now: use the shortcuts to resize until I get
the right size. I visually decide if the size is right
thanks to the outline.

I don't need to click on a selection, move to the canvas 
to see if the size is right, then move back to the 
selections to choose one of another size.

Well, most professional-grade artists and photographers
work with images that are much bigger than something you
can just put online. They only resize at the end.

I was actually thinking along the lines of choosing from a
drop down which brush you need for a script (script message:
please choose a round-ish brush of about x pixels). It'd
offer more possibilities for effects too (by selecting
different brushes available).

Though being able to put them in another folder is fine.
