Sorry, No backward compatibility for the smudge brush.
I mean it would of course be possible somehow but in my POV it
wouldn't be worth the effort.
We would have to make it possible that a preset for the smudge PaintOp
would load for the Color Smudge PaintOp. This looks like a hack for me.
I would just remove it. And even if the brush was marked as stable I
don't think its this important to keep backward compatibility for this
It didn't work correctly, so I think it wasn't in use so much and the
smudge brush only has 5 options where two of them don't have any effect
(the "darken" and the "opacity" option).
If you absolutely want the backward compatibility you need to take care
by yourself :D.
Alternatively I would suggest in the 2.4 release we let the users know
that the smudge brush is deprecated and will be removed in the next release.
Then they have time for a whole release cycle to convert their presets.
But I really prefer to just remove it :P

Yes thats exactly what I meant.
It's compilable. The whole calligra suite is so huge thats a real pain
to do a fresh compile. Even with a fast computer and just krita enabled
it takes painfully long. I think we should reduce where we can and don't
a lot of dead corpses along our way :D.
And it needs maintenance. Honestly It will become more and more a nightmare
to maintain the brush and paintop stuff. With all the brushes and
It's hard enough if someone needs to make some changes in the
Thats why I would like to remove at least the stuff thats not in use.
I mean it's just my opinion. I won't start to cry if we keep it :D

Thats not a bug. The filter and the deform brush don't work with
so this option gets disabled. But the experiment brush would work with other
modes except "normal" I guess. You only have to add the KisCompositeOpOption
in the settings widget. Or I can do it, if you want :).

Yes I think we should go for Davids proposed solution :)
