Graphicsgale has this tool as well, and yes I use it excessively as well.
GGale is a real pixel editor so you can (and should) use indexed mode and just change that palette index.

I never use indexed mode in GraphicsGale. I find it limits my workflow when selecting colors. I only use the indexation when I'm ready to save something or to temporarily check colors or change them.

Yeah I don't rly work in index mode i find it rly restrictive too.
I'm not so good working in restricted palettes anyway I like to be able to make my own colours and use software's tools like contrast, levels, saturation etc.
I should experiment with existing palette restrictions but instead I put more work into creating my own colours.
kinda feels like palette restrictions are a bit of a nostalgic thing more than something practical these days.

Going into indexed mode can screw up your palette ramp organization (and as a result, prevents you from using the "Make Gradiation" feature to create even ramps quickly.)

Indexed mode is for post production changes, or for if you have a palette prepared before production and want to adhere to it.

You can flop back and forth from index to full color mode.
Tho this is very true:

Another good way to do this without indexing or selections is use the Replace Color tool.
It works just like the Pen tool, except you can only paint on your 2nd color with your 1st.
Just pick a big brush shape and swipe back and forth a bit.
Color replace done.

It's really good for other stuff as well.
You can use it like a simple mask, or to paint continuously behind objects.

Still working on these. 
Still a WIP.
