scripts generate brushes instead of looking for brushes that don't exist and failing
These scripts require brushes that were removed from the brushes that
GIMP installs (96a6e5c2db2bed568c17bd149e92f1239a702763).
Recommend either restoring the brushes or converting the scripts to
generate brushes as needed (a patch should be included which accomplishes

patch for spyrogimp.scm
spyrogimp.scm breaks when run with its default settings which name a brush that
is no longer installed.
I do not know if the patch attached is an improvement or not -- instead of requesting a brush, it asks for a radius and a paint mode and makes a new brush,
uses that and then deletes the brush. The choice of installed brushes is not so
good for spyrogimp.
The patched script also shows (at least here) how badly broken GIMP brushes are
for regular old scripted painting. The default brush (which is a radius of .5px) is painting with a radius of twice that much or more.
The script does everything correctly though.
"painting with a radius of twice that much or more" should be "painting with a
radius of 10 times that or more".

this patch solves the problem of scripts requiring brushes that are not available
This patch makes vector brushes when brushes are actually needed by script-fu.
t-o-p-logo (Particle Trace) was requiring brushes it never used (and has been
needlessly requiring them since gimp-1.2).

patch for spyrogimp.scm
Pretty sure this needs some more adjustments in regard to gimp-context (e.g. for the size)

We should really have addressed this long ago, let's at least fix
it in 2.10. Thanks for the patch Carol.
Seems to me that this needs some additional work, though - setting the brush radius is not going to affect the size used anymore, is it?
