you are right if you compare an XCF and single-layered. But what about
if you just have some Jpg files (grabed from a camera for ex.) and that
you just want to optimize them to send them to some friends or
eventually put on a gallery. In this case, you have bot single-layered
(and more : same file format). And being able to see what space is eally
won regarding the loss of qualty can be nice. THis is not a esthetic
reason at all. But you are the master of it ;)

This is nice like this for me. I know some friend like to modify color
table in gifs and png-8. May be having the list of colors (like
palettes), and allowing the user to modify the colors would help them.
But may be it is a long way for a little benefit. I'm not good enough in
coding to ealuate that. Snif.
