I'd advise making ^S to be Quit.  Then you'll be prompted, realise
your mistake, and quickly stop using ^S.  That way when you
install a new gimp and accidentally lose your settings, you
will already have stopped using ^S :)

For my part I miss "save a copy as..." which in some programs
saves the file like Save As but doesn't change the filename of
what's being edited.

I wonder if it'd be possible, for gimp 2.6, to consider unifying
the output plugins a bit, so that you can have a pull-down of file
formats and see the parameters for each format before you hit save,
and maybe even have printf-like stuff in the filename, e.g. to
name the file mypicture-%Wx%H-%{quality}.%T or whatever.

But I think we can live without it for 2.4, for my part at least :-)
