IMHO, the pencil tool should be left alone for consistancies' sake and there should be a new tool to deal with the very special case of drawing single-pixel-wide hard-edged lines. This hypothetical gadget could use Bresenham's algorithm or something like that because it wouldn't *NEED* to

it would matter if you could name an advantage it would give us. I don't mind adding a simple XML-parser to GIMP-1.4 since it's pretty simple using GMarkup from GLib-2.0, but I don't want to do so without a good reason. hmm.. XML could be quickly converted to HTML and used on the web
