Keyboard controls to help tablet use
When creating brushes using a tablet, I find I keep having to use the mouse scroll wheel to set brush size, opacity and hardness. It would be very useful to have keyboard short-cuts available for these controls so as to avoid having to put down the pen, grab the mouse, make the change, put down the mouse and grab the pen again.
It would also be useful for both pen and mouse users to have a continuous draw mode where ending a brush automatically selects brush mode again until cancelled by a right click. I find that I normally have to add several brushes when masking a complex area like a face and it would save time not to have to keep selecting new brush for each path.

[ and ] have been added as keyboard short cuts to control brush size. That's really helpful. When using the mouse, Ctrl and Shift can be used to control opacity and inner circle size. It would be great if these modifiers would also work with the [ and ] short-cuts.

I just bought a wacom tablet and it's quite a pain to use it in darktable :(
This is sad because it's a matter of very simple changes: 4 new shortcuts and automatically re-selects the brush mode when ending a brush. And all these changes could also be usefull when using the mouse.
