I really like this feature from Krita and My paint but I think it would be
very inconsistent with from the way every other short cut we have. does
switching back and forth between tools using N, P, E, A, and K work for
you? I personally turn off the sharing options in the tool options because
when I use the brush and the pen or the air brush I expect them to be
different. I manly use brush and the eraser but I think I might turn them
back on now.

Here <http://registry.gimp.org/node/27608> is a plug in that does what you
are looking for. I agree that this would be a nice feature to have come
with GIMP. There have been a few brainstorm pages over the years about
this topics here
I don't know if there is a feature request in bugzilla though.
The plugin does not work in GIMP 2.9 as the function it uses is
deprecated. I am unable to log into the plugin registry or I would report
the bug I am having. Here is the error I am getting.
WARNING: Plug-In "dynamic_brush_resize.py"
called deprecated procedure 'gimp-brushes-get-spacing'.
It should call 'gimp-brush-get-spacing' instead!
3 - Dynamic zoom

This is honistly one of the greatest features of My paint. To very quickly
zoom in and out like this is so amazing. I would add shift+Drag to rotate
the image once that feature is done as well.
