The way you'd do this short of a dedicated interface would be to use a
gradient paint color... i.e. 'color based on distance along stroke', as
I was talking about in my previous mail.

The basic problem with this is that it's a stroke that cannot be done in
real-time, because you can't calculate any given part of the stroke
until the entire stroke is completed. (At best you can hope it's fast
enough to have a dynamically-updating preview.) Not to say that it
shouldn't be done, just that this is a fairly significant caveat in
terms of how it could be implemented.
