Well habbits or not, I still wonder why it is explicitly disallowed to save as
something other than xcf. As I said, allowing that+keeping the export option
makes all users happy. Now, a way that apparently some part of the users like
and some don't is forced to all, while it is not necessary to force it.
GIMP is not the only program I use, so yeah I keep pressing CTRL+S thinking
that should save whatever I'm editting to whatever file extension I gave it,
just like in Inkscape, Libreoffice, KDevelop, etc. To me, "exporting" to a png
does not feel like exporting at all. If the original image is something
bitmappy without layers, there is no loss, and I use GIMP mostly for that. If
it did have layers, GIMP would already warn. I don't use GIMP often enough to
get used to learn the fact that it's the only program I have where CTRL+S does
not save, but rather wants me to make a temporary projectfile.
