I have also thought a bit on how to clean up the concept of brushes, and
in my mind, we could do it like this:
We make a "brush" be just a bitmap/svg/whatever (possibly also an
animation). Note that a brush would not even have a spacing as the
current GIMP gbr brushes.
A "brush preset" is a brush + dynamics, and this is actually what the
user typically picks. If we would have tags for brush presets, we would
be one step closer to make brush options be part of the brush, so to speak.
