Exactly, I had not worried in a long time, as always saved to XCF, and
used save a copy for the JPG or whatever when needed. Now it seems
save a copy is becoming redundant, if I need yet another XCF, I can
duplicate the image and save that.
So I am on the wall about how the new system will play for quick
things (pretty common when tweaking a texture for a game or doing a
raw "this what I mean" sketch) in the long run, as the issue that
supposedly fixes, was a non issue already while mental load is
increased with new commands and remembering if the complains about
"not saved" matter or not.
