As I've been asked, I'll just quote what I already submitted to
bugzilla, minus the typos:
I see no use in non-icremental paiting. It appears to exist only because
it was easier to implement than normal painting, which does not work
properly, as I've filed in at least one other bug report.
Not only should incremental paiting urgently be fixed, as described
there, but non-incremental painting, or the option to choose between the
two, should be removed as a whole.
If anyone can think of a usecase where that non-intuitive, unpredictable
painting mode is actually useful, please prove me wrong.
Until then, I interpret the mere existance of that painting mode as an
excuse to not admit one of the most serious flaws in gimp with regard to
To be blunt, as long as there is no way for a painter to properly
anticipate the color in which he draws unless he draws in short,
non-self-overlapping strokes (which, admittedly, is typical for
water-color et al), gimp may be a powerful graphics-editor but remains
nothing but a toy for painting (and all efforts related to painting such
as providing well-designed presets remain futile).
