Now a while Krita team created a custom widget for Krita to save space and
make easier pen use for the application UI.
Same functionality is coming to GIMP 2.8 (now on development version 2.7)
what is littlebit different by function. Depending does user drag upper or
lower part of the slider widget.

Should digiKam take same direction as Krita has?

Here is example of same widget lenght what gives about 15% space saving.
Less buttons, but still offering same information and possibility to click
and type wanted number.

It has benefits for space and easy dragging. But it has bad side as well,
what is color schema what can be very bright when having multiple colored
widgets on sidepanel. Or that there is no scale metering for steps (can be
good and bad).
