It's not certain that bristles won't need a completely different editor. And 
completely different parameters. We are still experimentation, we even have 
currently two different implementations of bristles. There is more to 
bristles than the number of bristles, it includes also the "shape" (wether 
all bristles have the same length) ...

Yeah. From what I have seen the Corel folks also seems to have quiet a few 
problem when designing their painting system. It seems to be different 
release after release.
