I d'be against the removal of the "vintage" pixmaped brushes.

However, what I think would be a good solution for preserving compatibility 
would also take these out of the way of users, while keping then available for 
scripts or anyone who looks for them.

Basically: we have to figure out a way of GIMP not displayin all available 
resources if no tag filtering is active. By figuring out a way, I mean an 
interface way. 

Then, woud be a matter of tagging the unwanted-by-default backwards compatible 
brushes with an specifc tag (like "classic"), that would not be shown. 

If changes in the current behavior of displaying everything when there are no 
tag filters are not desirable, the way to achieve this would be simply to tag 
the resoruces we want showing with "default", and this tag could come pre-
selected on the UI.
