Ok, I'll add an option to switch between the two.

The 'blue bell peppers' and 'purple sunbursts' are actually the result of some 
undefined behaviour on the part of the compiler. In:

qRgba(255 - m_data[k++], 255 - m_data[k++], 255 - m_data[k++], 
  255 - m_data[k++])

the compiler is allowed to evaluate the arguments to qRgba() in any order it 
likes, not necessarily left to right. So the value of k used in each argument 
might not be what you expected. I'm pretty sure I've had purple sunbursts at 
one point, but currently I get green ones. :-)

On the question of options, where are things like this going to go? Currently 
there's a 'Current Tool Properties' dialog that is opened from the Settings 
menu. There's also the 'Tool Properties' dockbar that shows the current 
colours, brush, pattern and gradient. That could be used to put options on 
for the current tool. Or will we have a separate dockbar for each tool? Or is 
something better already planned?
