[dx2] Include tux-paint like stamping feature in Paint

Description

It would be great to have the stamping feature (present in Tux-Paint) in Paint.

<bernie> m_anish: the stamping feature is really a good one, imho. Painting with bitmap brushes is a technique that was popular on the amiga and somehow got lost in the next generation of paint applications on windows and linux.

<bernie> m_anish: i wish gonzalo was here to talk about it... the basic idea is that the user cookie-cuts a region of the image and this becomes their brush used instead of the stock pens for all drawing operations.

Might be a good idea to have a discussion on this sometime :-)

I think this must be easy to do. I don't know the performance cost of stamping anyway.

But I am putting a priority in fixing the bugs first.

Now I have implemented the new toolbar, and I want show the color, size and shape of the pencil tool in the toolbar color button icon. Implementing stamping can be a posterior improvement, and I like the idea of taking a region of the draw to create the stamp.

We can start a whish list, may be to hack at nights in mvd :)

Replying to m_anish:

I implemented the new toolbar in Paint, and created a custom toolbar item to show the shape, color and size of the brush. I think now we can implement a custom brush, use the selected region to create the brush, scale it to the brush size and stamp it. I think will be really easy to do.
