During the 2.7.x development a lot of changes were done to both the
specification and implementation of the new way of dealing with save
and export based on feedback from gimpers that were using the
development version. The reactions to; and eventual acceptance from
most; made core contributors aware that there would be a shit-storm –
and that just like for the avantgarde, the general masses are likely
to embrace the new way in the end. In particular knowing that these
are necessary reorganization to enable even more powerful ways of
working in the future.
