The idea is based one of bug list's enhancment request which asks to
save image for Internet, ie user wants image to be as small as
possible (for example to send with mail or put to forum) and some
parts could be cropped and picture could be resized until wanted file
size is reached.
It was then decided that this functionality should be put in save for
web plug-in. (see http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=317100 )
Maybe we should discuss again if this functionality is needed and if
so, is it convenient to integrate it into save for web plug-in.
