I "work with the tool" from its version numbered 2.4. And I use it
primarily as a photo processing tool. I can say that the save/export
feature is a very logical one from my point of view as I can be sure
that I have ALL THE INFORMATION in the SAVED image as long as I can have
only PARTIAL INFORMATION in the EXPORTED image. Have you ever got to
redo some hours work when you think that you saved the image but in fact
you really exported it only? The features that I really miss are the
high-bit color depths and better CMYK and Lab colorspaces support. And I
beleive we won't get them faster if we mess the developers in teapot
tempests instead of giving them our appreciation.
P.S. If you really prefer accidentaly loosing your information you can
surely redefine hot keys.
