Inline Fill Tool

This is an idea for a new tool.

I haven't seen it in any other pixelling program ever but it would be a HUGE time-saver for me.

It would work like this:
You click somewhere on the picture and similar to the fill bucket it would affect the single-coloured area around the pixel you clicked on. It would draw a single-pixel line INSIDE this area using the FG colour. So it would work like the opposite of the brush outline function.

You could also use it for quick outlining without picking a brush first by clicking outside the shape to be outlined.

It could be another state for the fill-bucket button.

I am attaching images to illustrate the behaviour.

Here you go...

Assign script to a key.

I've only tested it quickly, but it seem to work fine. Let me know if there's any problems...

It works! \o/ Thanks!

Does anyone have good suggestion for script shortcuts? I tend to use ctrl+F-keys but that's not too quick to press

Well, I use Alt-# for most since they are free (I think) and can be entered with one hand; Alt-1 for the Toolbox (can hit that combo blindfolded on my keyboard) and Alt-2 to 6 are various key-only scripts. I also have the adjacent keys Shift-"<" for brush-grab and Ctrl-"<" for brush-grab-remove.
