The ones I have looked at, mainly set background and then do a
edit-fill with BG or a drawable-fill.

There is no question of removing either of the above PDB functions,
AFAICS. It's just a matter of what to do to emulate the old FG / BG
behaviour. In the case of my proposition, FG would remain (as slot #1
-- 'current') and BG would map to slot #2 ('immediately previous').
However, one side effect is that setting FG could change BG (through
the normal history cycling mechanism). Erk.
