In the case of the warning popups when saving, why show them
at all? Of course it needs to flatten layers when saving to JPEG;
why not just do it without asking me every time? It's not like
I have an option to save without flattening; all I can do is
press OK.

In the case of converting to indexed to save as gif, there's
some point to it because the user might not realize there's such
a severe loss of quality about to happen; but it's still not
important enough to warrant a whole extra dialog to which the
only options are OK/Cancel. Just put it in the normal GIF save
dialog, as a label that says "Image will be converted to Indexed
mode before saving" if the image isn't already indexed.

A similar case was the warning I saw sometimes when a layer mask was
selected. I never quite figured out the point of that warning since
it seemed to save the image correctly anyway. But that dialog seems
to be gone now in CVS HEAD.

Is there a way to disable this? It gets in my way, because I hit it
fairly often by accident (probably when I'm trying to hit 1 to make
the image full-size), and it's several steps to undo it: in gimp 2.3
a single tab brings all the windows back (much better than gimp 2.2
where it took several tabs) but in the windowmanagers I use, the
focus now moves to one of the restored windows so it's no longer in
the image window where it was, and I have to move the mouse out of
the window and back in. I've looked for places to disable it, but 
I don't see anything about the tab key in the Keyboard Shortcuts
window or in menurc where other key bindings are controlled.
