This isn't always true.

For example, after working on a photograph I scale it down e.g. to 600
pixels across, and export a jpeg. If at that point I save the xcf file,
I will lose data, because xcf does not store the undo history.

Yes, I could use ImageMagick to scale the image, but (1) I do want to
see the jpeg preview, as it often needs some extra work in curves or
sharpen, and (2) I'm already in gimp :)
