So basically the whole dialog is useless and could just as well be 
replaced by assuming that the user clicked "Export..." and maybe a 
notice in save dialog that any other format except xcf may cause some 
data loss. That should be simple to implement... Any chance that could 
be done before 2.6? Its a small change but would make a decent usability
