It was requested to add an eraser/rubber tool (actually simply painting with a pickable color).

Can currently be worked around by using the freehand tool to "erase" by painting e.g. with white color (however this is cumbersome, because you have to reset color/line thickness afterwards, if you want to actually draw something again).

Maybe the tool could even try to guess the right color to use by inspecting the color of surrounding pixels (this would only work for solid backgrounds of course, no intent to implement a "healing" tool like in Photoshop)

    Could also be implemented as another variation of the obfuscation tool. Fill with the color found on the outside of the rectangle.
