sorry if you don't want to argue, I don't want to hurt with my observations.
I just hope they make sens, and gives you a user feedback.

:D cool for your developpement time for the flow and opacity now in wash 
mode too !
They act really good. Thanks !

I'm just a bit sad that it's made on wash mode . Wash mode still have a 
problem in my opinion , something I reported since more than a year with 
the wash mode : I don't know really what happen, I just know it's wrong 
for the result ; and makes the creation of a good airbrush preset in 
Krita almost impossible ( possible with normal mode, but some glitch 
appear with blending mode. ). Maybe it's not about wash mode but about a 
compositing thing or the way the soft edges of the brush is computed.

I did this document to help understand what I consider as a problem :
and a little joke :

oh , new message ( ^ ^ )

I trust you to make the right choice ; again here I'm just a artist /user :)
Cool if the Ui goes for being simpler for user.
Btw, here I don't understand the terms direct painting and indirect 
That should maybe related to how you manage it behind the Ui buttons :)
