Anna, Maarten! Hi!

Accidental loss of unsaved work more than a few times (by different reason,
forced me to use this python plugin http://registry.gimp.org/node/26115 

You might want to check it out. It saves as xcf (bz2, gz) all open, all
changed images

Works like a charm. Could be an integral part of standard GIMP package
