Overlay gradient tool - need an option to erase it manually in desired areas

Recommended Posts

Yes, that simple. 
Would not it be natural to have such opportunity? Something similar to erase/add  brush in Adobe's gradient tool in Camera RAW.

I am a little confused as to what this would do that the regular Erase Brush Tool wouldn't do.

I can't edit the gradient mask with erase brush tool (at least in 1.7). 

Paint the gradient, pick EBT and try to erase some areas of highlighted mask - and nothing happens.

Yes, I was asking about gradient tool in Developing persona. Sorry for not being clear from very beginning.
