Well, what I meant by Bryce-like... you've got stucco, fractal,
multifractal (really I think these are just variations on perlin), grid,
sine (both boring), random paths, marble, voroni... and some others that
the names aren't really meaningful.
What would also be a powerful addition is the ability to control
frequency/density/scaling in a non-uniform manner, to add octaves in one
pass (i.e. without doing it by hand by running the filter several
times), and to apply a linear filter the noise function before color
mapping (all things Bryce does). Bryce also does rotation and "phase"
(using a second noise generator to jitter the coordinates of the first).

D'oh, that *does* look like PS's "Clouds" filter :-). How configurable
is it currently? (Apparently my Krita doesn't have it, either :-(, must
be missing the plugin pack or something.)
