Yes, saving memory is an important aspect for a "destructive" crop, and 
achieving it otherwise is troublesome.

I think that the regular toggle-key message in the toolbox would be 
sufficient, i.e. "Crop/expand canvas (Shift)".

I think some kind of clue like this was how I originally discovered the 
shift-click in the old Gimp version, though it had a dialog box with a 
separate button for the action as well.
