Merge the Mixer Brush Tool into the Normal Brush Tool

Right now the Mixer Brush and the normal Brush are two seperate tools, although it would be better if they where just one tool.

The Mixer Brush only difference to the normal Brush is that it has 1 additional Setting (Mix-Jitter, under the Transfer Tab in Brush settings).

It would be more efficient and fitting if the Mix-Jitter Setting was just merged into the settings for the normal Brush.
Mix Jitter should be just one of the other normal Brush settings, like Size,Opacity or structure.

It makes no sense to pack it into a tool on its own.

Why do we want this?
Because I know a LOT of people who don't even know that the Mixer Brush exists, and are just craving for a paintfeature like this!

Those that know about it find it tedious to incorporate it into their workflow of digital painting, because you have switch between the tools tediously all the time you want a little more mixing in your painting, and have to do so by press+hold your mouse on the brush tool till you can switch to the mixer brush.

It's just way too hidden, way to invisible, inaccessible.

Adobe can take a look on how other digital painting tools are handling this:
Mixing is a standart feature for digital painting there, just like opacity.
You don't need to switch to a different tool if you want to make a more mixing stroke here or there.

So, please merge this awesome feature to where it really belongs: into the normal settings tab of the brush tool.

Thx!

What? That's 100% inaccurate. The mixer brush is wildly different than the normal brush. There are no mixer settings which emulate the normal brush, so how exactly would they combine them?

This is just like any other tool in Ps. I use the mixer brush on nearly every image i work on, and to toggle between that and the normal brush is shift-B, which takes all of .1 seconds to switch.
