O.K., but I may not care if file is safe or not. All I want is to have that
changed file on my disk. I don't mind if it's saved or exported. Why make
things complicated for this kind of users?

Next: It's not clear what will happen to my "foo.png" file after I choose
"Save" image as 'Untitled.xcf'. Will my "foo.png" be changed as well? Will my
"foo.png" disappear because it's now "safe" as 'Untitled.xcf' and I don't need
it any longer?

 Maybe it'd be better to completely rearrange that dialog to something like:
"If you close the image, changes from last minute will be lost.
You can either save image as 'Untilted.xcf' or export it to any other
