[Gimp-gui] Improving FG/BG colours and the interaction with colour history

General premises

On GIMP we have the interesting shortcut to swap colours between FG and Background.
For painting tasks this swap is very useful, mainly if we are using the colour parameter (paint dynamics).
Seeing a recent and an old bug report (thanks Elle)... I think be useful open an short discussion around the topic.


Is already present on GIMP a history of colours on the dialog to change the colours of FG or BG.
But is also interesting to have an extension of this concept, but more easier or simplified to use.
I think that MyPaint has a efficient concept of this feature. The history of colours is a buffer with the last 5 colours used.
The concept of history on GIMP is a bit different... and like is a kind of a secondary palette.
To paint workflow, perhaps is more usable the history MyPaint concept.

Create a secondary swap colours shortcut where is possible is possible to have the last colours used on the canvas.
Perhaps, would be interesting to have on the prefs the possibility to choose the amount of colours.
Perhaps is useful to have a dialog where is possible to see the colour selection.
I have made a short video to show this feature on MyPaint.
The feature on MyPaint has also by default the key 'x' to access this history.
