Wrong. This is open source. That implies that whoever writes the code decides. If you don't agree in their decision you are free to grab your favorite text editor and do the changes yourself. Or find someone whom you can pay to do it for you. IMO it's extremely rude to tell anyone what to do when all they do is done for free for your pleasure.

I don't think any serious user would be willing to throw away his work of the last years just because GIMP breaks backwards compatibility. If that's ok for you it tells quite a lot about the quality of your work. [...] > Charlie Tobias, who tries to calm down again. It's just that this kind of attitude pisses me off.
