What about using just Import/Export?

The GIMP could take care of saving automatically, e.g. by writing XCFs to a 
private folder.
Import/Export work on all filetypes.
Closing an image writes an XCF to the private folder.
Closed images can be retrieved via File->Recent

This leaves open the problem of when to delete the XCFs.

Throwing out Open/Save/Save_as_Copy as a whole solves a lot of issues.
