first of all, ctrl-shift-e was chosen because it works like that
cross application (inkscape and co).
also think about it: when working on a project (serious work = our
priority in design vs. hit and run editing) then there will be in
quite a few workflows a lot more ctrl-E (equivalent to ctrl-S) for
reviewing, than ctrl-shift-E (equivalent to ctrl-shift-S) for
anchoring to another export file(-path/-format).
this is why I am insisting that it is not going to change, in the future.
since the GIMP team (and I as interaction architect particularly)
have the duty not to encourage overwriting/destructing the original
file by accident, there is no shortcut on overwrite by default.
Users can set it by hand, it is their call on the convinience vs.
founder + principal interaction architect
man + machine interface works
