So is your thought to provide a new set of PDB calls with extra
parameters like brush scale, jitter, etc? The drawback to this might
be that as more brush dynamics get added the functions will get
obsoleted, much the current set that provide gradient colouring.
Here is another question... Should the basic paint calls (I.e. Those
with the description "using current brush") that have no parameters
just be changed to paint respecting all the current brush options,
like scaling, jitter, etc. ?
