One brush per brick, but you can have multiple bricks of the same adjustment type.
Oh, excellent. Actually I'd kind of noticed that before: In the "brick" for certain brushes or adjustments there's a command under the gear icon labeled "Add new X adjustment," for example, "Add new definition adjustment." It just hadn't sunk in yet how that addressed the issues I've been wondering about. Thanks for clarifying this!
OK -- last post to this thread before I return to getting work done .

I wish it had even more keyboard shortcuts
The keyboard shortcuts are fully customized. I have mine set so that everything I use regularly is available to my left hand (I use a high-res mouse or a tablet stylus in my right hand). This is an advanced topic, best left for another day -- but rest assured that you can make as many keyboard shortcuts as you are likely able to remember. More info in on this page in the User Manual. Don't look at it! The command editor is not Apple's greatest moment in GUI design.
The workspace is quite customizable. You can show/hide the panes, move them left/right and top bottom, and much more.
You make well your point re: showing the brush mask. It is, of course, almost easy to show. Just not as immediately available as you would like. Fwiw, I don't think, per se, that having brush overlays a click away is poor design.
EXCELLENT tips about the shortcuts, Kirby. I'd figured out long ago how to get into full screen mode but haven't been using it because I seemed to lose the adjustments panel. I hadn't discovered the "h" shortcut. This will be a huge help to me, as will the option-click arrow to show/hide all tip.
