Accidental work loss is the main reason I dislike the new model.
I don't much mind the Save vs. Export split, or remembering when I
need to type Ctrl-E vs. Ctrl-S -- but it's frustrating that I no
longer have any way to tell whether all my JPGs have been
sav^H^H^Hexported and therefore it's safe to quit GIMP. With
the 2.8 model I actually have more risk of work loss, not less.

When I wrote Save/export clean, I wrote it for other people and
didn't really plan to use it myself -- I wanted to adapt to the new
model -- but I find I do use it, for that reason.

That would solve the problem for me. I wouldn't mind so much getting
the warning dialog when I quit if it gave me some way to tell whether
all the JPGs have been safely exported. Especially if it grouped
the neither-saved-nor-exported images first, so I could notice them
without scrolling through every image touched during the session.

Maybe 2.8.3?  2.8.2 doesn't do that, just: "There is one image with
unsaved changes: [Untitled]-1". No export or filename info, not even
the original filename.
