Dear Michael,

In good old Atari times, I had to "click" (by pixel toggling) my own
printer fonts letter by letter; bearing this in mind, I'd regard
Gimp currently not for the 1st choice for icon editing:

- there is no toggle mode for 1-bit-palette
- due to rounding, I assume, you have to click several times
  until the current pixel gets black.
- If you use greyscale, soft pencil settings may lead to
  unpredictable (fuzzy) results.

Next time, I'll have a try for greenfish [1]. Don't get me wrong,
I am quite aware, that this kind of task is not exactly the
main target of GIMP, hence I dare not even file a bug report;
what do you think?

Kind regards
