No, although I've encountered it. Most programs are indeed lossy in this

I've used others, although I think not recently - ranging from CAD
software to SGML editors, although none were below $1000/seat.

I can easily spend 10 or 20 minutes working on a selection in GIMP,
though, so I'm OK with that warning. Or would be, except I only use xcf
for about 1% of the images I edit, and all the others are saved (they
have only one layer) to PNG.
