How about the change where we leave the ctrl-E shortcut, but
automatically set it up to do something (at the moment it does nothing)
when a file is imported into GIMP? My suggestion is an export (to the
original file name and file type), but with a 'are you sure you want to
overwrite?' dialog before the export happens, with the focus
automatically on the cancel so 'enter' will cancel the export.
