Yes :) Let's document it here on mailing list ;)

Or we could have tool presets. Not a solution for our problem though :/
It will be needed when the multihand will be more advanced like allowing
user to define any transformation of the stroke.

Regarding the logic confusion: the opacity option in the brush editor
controls the mask opacity. That is different opacity then the one in
the tool bar.
The global opacity (in the toolbar)  is used to composite the final
dab with canvas.
So there is difference. Now there is slider in the option that
controls both..not sure
if that is good idea.
