What many digital painters long for:
How about giving us the function of smeary / oily brushes?

A Brush setting that picks up the underlying color and mixes it while painting.
With different control options to set it to, like the obvious pressure sensitivity etc.

most painting apps feature something like this, only photoshop still hasn't picked on this..

Have you tried the Mixer Brush in Photoshop CS5? It will pick up color from the canvas, mix it and put it back down.
