There's no reason I can see that pencil couldn't just be a predefined
tool preset for painting with an icon on the toolbox, and people be able
to add their own presets to the toolbox and maybe bind them to keys.

The name is a little misleading - I'd expect a pencil to leave a soft
grey stroke that's slightly uneven. Gimp's pencil tool is closer to a
rapidograph-style drawing pen, except it doesn't clog up so easily :-)
