I too have ranted about this topic. Not to get into it again, I would
like to point out a couple of things:
1. This change doesn't remove functionality. It only moves it.
2. This is not a show-stopper in any sense of the word.
and sorta 3. Someone has created some sort of script which restores the
original behavior. I have not tried it and I probably won't. It takes
some getting used to and, yes, it is a type of behavior which is not
like many other programs so a greater unified behavior has been
compromised. But the script, if it's a huge problem for you, might be
your best solution.
Not to hijack the thread (because I know I'm not going to help make any
change) but if there was any REAL complaint which is a show-stopper for
many, it would be that GiMP relies on GTK. And since my OS of choice
(CentOS/RHEL) does not use a new enough version of GTK, I cannot run the
latest GiMP without some serious compromises and a lot of work. (The
REAL fault is that GNOME decided to go with an application library for
its desktop environment)
The point is, there is a huge difference between an annoyance which can
be worked around and a real-live show-stopper. The GNOME-GTK-GIMP
connection creates a horrible show stopper for people who don't want to
use GNOME 3.x... and can't run Mate (yet).

See? This is what I was referring to.
Historically, tools and software are improved by professionals,
amateurs benefit. Doing the opposite is a mistake.
Look at what happens in the image world industry.
