Namespaces we're not available, among other things, in gcc when krita was 
originally written.

I really wish koffice filters would be extended just a bit for Krita's usage.  
The notion that krita would need it's own filters from every other KOffice 
app makes me sad.

Composite pattern is used for paint devices, layers, channels, etc.

The plugin stuff has been there forever and should be removed really, it has 
no value.

ImageMagick is for importing/exporting of foreign image formats, yes.  The 
goal is to put this in a filter proper.  However, the koffice filter 
interface would make it difficult to do anything with these filters other 
than loading an entire image at a time.

Steal from the Gimp forever?

Code wise:

You should use Q_INT32 instead of int.

don't use //, if you want to comment out a large section of code, use #if 0

You actually have a huge memory leak in your new drawPolyline method.  Check 
out the destructor of KisPixelData.

Adding // ??? doesn't really do anything but add clout to the code.

Yeah, why did you reorder data members in KisView, KisPixelData, etc?  They 
look awful now (tab vs. spaces) and for no apparent reason either.

Also, if you want to start renaming classes, i.e. KisToolBrush to ToolBrush, 
change the file name too.
