This is a very good idea, but I think it would be more logic and
consistent with the style of brush outlines in GIMP if it was the
opposite: solid external outline (representing the brush area limits),
and dashed internal outline.
One of the reasons for this is that hardness (which creates the
fuzzyness) is a brush attribute which can dynamically change with brush
dynamics (in static conditions hardness could be 100% hard, but become
completely fuzzy as drawing pressure increases for example), and would
better work with my proposal of varying in realtime brush outlines
according to them.
