Hey, let's have a look at the problem that started this thread:

> Juhana wants to get a color from some picture to paint on another.

There was an easy solution suggested by Jukka:

> In gimp 1.1 you can use 'ctrl' to temporarily change to colorpicker if you
> are using one of the painting tools (pencil, paintbrush, airbrush, etc)

So as this solves the initial problem a question arises:

  Does anyone know of a situation other than these, where a changing tool is

If yes, collect this situations and find existing or pragmatic or new and
innovative ideas!

And to discuss the 'active tool' pattern:

- what is it good for, if the tool changes -- but only the tool?  You maybe
  have to remake all the other settings (brush, colours, etc.)

- and if the whole context is fixed for a special image, you can't use the
  active tool to solve the ppp (picture palette problem).
