Now for the feature in question... Krita has a simple on-canvas
way to
edit brush size. AFAIK, it's Ctrl+LMB+drag. It's a fairly reasonable
solution, and I for one would welcome it.

When a mouse is in use, changing brush sizes without leaving the
canvas is a snap - IF you set it up.  The menu item for this is at
Edit > Preferences > Input Controllers.  Picture worth thousand



That's indeed awesome, however, various OS's (like Windows) trap the Alt key for menubar activation so GIMP 
(GTK?) needs to distinguish that Alt+(something) = shortcut key and Alt (by itself) = activate the menubar.  
On which note, I am occasionally frustrated that pressing the ALT key in a GTK2+ app does not activate the 
menubar like every Windows user expects it to.  (This applies to GIMP and Inkscape both.)  This is a major 
suckage on the UI too (esp. if it's not reconfigurable), because alt key sequences are just as strong a habit 
as Ctrl+shortcut keys are.
