as i wrote, i would be interested in a way to edit relevant settings 
without moving the mouse (and without learning tedious shortcuts), but 
until now i've not seen any convincing proposals (well, if i have to 
tell the truth, my proposals were not judged ok by other people...).
i like how mypaint (and martin) solved it for the color picking... maybe 
there is a solution for DTP, too!

but i don't think that we should kill the PP... they should probably 

let's think about it!
