I found a solution to the cursor not tracking the "current"
color (although it's probably not the most elegant possible
it shouldn't do any harm) and committed. There are still one
or two rough edges, but mostly it seems to work just fine:
- It doesn't handle an unset color gracefully. Ideally I'd
like it to use rgba(0,0,0,0) or, even fancier, track the
(default) color of the layer/group into which the shape would
be drawn (giving the effective color that would be drawn).
- It probably doesn't track changes to the tool's color
made in the preferences (if you use the "tool's color"
instead of the last used color), but since this discrepancy
only lasts until you reselect the tool and people probably
tend to do this only very infrequently I don't think this
should be too problematic.
Could you also implement this for the spiral, pen(cil) and calligraphy
