The fatal problem is that similar quality will not be achieved that way.

Thats the only sensible thing. Another sensible thing would be to seperate
the save dialog from from actual saving process. For some image formats, the
only way to change parameters is to use Save As, and until reently you even
had to type in the image filename again.

For other image formats, you always get the file save dialog, even when
you just want to save the image. Guess why the xcf format does not have a
dialog at all ;)

[saving an app chunk]

That would be a reasonable solution. Make it default to off, of course ;)
