The plan is to let plug-ins still use gimp_export_image() for creating 
an image suitable for exporting, it's just that we will remove that 
function's bad habit of asking annoying questions in the process. This 
is slight change in API semantics, but the ABI/API is still unchanged 
and I don't consider this a problem.
