Line drawing (and more frequently, H/V constraint) with 'shift' is one
PS feature I find very useful, that Krita doesn't have :-(.
I'm used to spacing being per-brush; this is particularly useful when
creating "effect" brushes (especially combined with size/position jitter).

For elliptical brushes, I don't think your illustration works well.
Usually you have three handles; angle, major radius, minor radius. I've
never heard of skewing an elliptical brush; I'm not convinced even
bitmap brushes (hmm, svg brushes? ;-) ) would need to be skewed.
Btw, at some point we are going to have multi-bristle brushes ala
Painter, right? :-) And airbrushes with particle size, proper
scatter/density ("conic sections" anyone?), etc...

Huh, for you maybe, I personally like having them (maybe just because I
am bothered by drawing with a 5.1523241 px radius brush ;-) ), but
hiding them in a collapsing section is fine.
Me: wtf?? "#warning This is temporary since Dec 2000". Seven-year
Mathieu Chouinard: Sounds like the correct definition of temporary :)
