Thanks Rob -- that is goog reason enough. Sven: Besides, with the current set, without these, GIMP woul be a "100% b&w" boring looking program - A litle bit of color in the brushes would be needed for this reason alone, IMHO. It is true that when lecturing on GIMP I usually to say that the best use for the Pepper brush is to help us locate the Pixel brush, right next to it :-) (but then, I'd actually favor a whole set of "fruit & vegetable" brushes to ship by default with GIMP) Alexia also holds that they should stay in terms even more clear than Rob did: they help one experimentt with the brush dynamics, color combination modes and otehr painting settings in ways that generated brushes or monochrome + alpha brushes can't help. Now, my tagging proposal would just keep then available for people and scritps alike, while making then 100% non-obtrusive, - I don' t understand why you haven't commented on that. js -><-
