kispainter is use as a data structure for the duplicate properties is more 
due to that I didn't understand how paintop are supposed to expose their

Usuability people strongly advice against autogenrate configuration widget 
from property strings. That's why paintop and filters return wigets.

if it's in reaction on how I did add the heal/perspective option to the 
duplicate op, then it should be a reaction on my misunderstanding of the 
paintop configuration ;) But, currently, the configuration widget for paintop 
has limited place as it is inserted in the toolbar.

My problem is more about consitency, the dab options are configured in some 
place, while bristles will be configured somewhere else.
