Ok, you should really see the options in the toolbar now as shortcuts to 
the options in the preset editor.
They reflect the state in the preset editor.

Yes I still need to add the blending mode option to the other brushes.

If you disable the opacity setting in the preset editor, I find it only 
logical to disable the opacity slider in the toolbar.
If you disable the option, you cannot change the opacity anyway... why 
should you be able to move the slider then?
And why should the slider enable the opacity setting? If you disabled it 
in the first place you don't want to change the opacity
anyway. If you want to change the opacity again you can simply turn on 
the option.... no?

The same with the blending mode option.
If the coder of a PaintOp thinks that his/her brush doesn't work with
blending modes, the blending mode option will simply be excluded and the 
user isn't able to
change the blending mode anymore.

For example the smudge brush (ok this will be removed anyway :D), the 
deform brush and the filter brush don't work with blending modes.
The filter brush doesn't even has an opacity option! :D

And for the other PaintOps I will add the blending mode option of course.

Yes... the height of one cell is atm the maximum height of all the 
cells. Maybe we should just set it to a fixed size... but I don't know 
if this would still work when
people have fancy GUI skins and font settings...
But was this different before my changes?

It's all intentional, please see my explanations above :P
If it's only bugging you that with many brushes the opacity slider is 
disabled by default, then we should just change the default
preset so that the opacity option is enabled by default.
