Yes. There is a reason for me to ignore this request: One of the few 
things in the world that requires  a single button to operate  is a 
toaster. An Image manipulation Program is no toaster, and it does 
need preferences settings to work in an optimal way. 

No one needs to find, learn and set to an optimal state the program's 
preferences in the first use, or even in the first month of use. I 
don't see any need to artifically keep the preferences down - a user 
who doesn't have a clue about why computer programs differ from a 
toaster will have a feeling of "looking at things under the hood" 
when using the preferences dialog in the first place - it won't hurt 
if all the preferences needed are there.

Besides, as I wrote clearly before - the first place I would search 
for such an option would be in "Input Devices" - even it is not the 
"right" place to put it in. There is space in the input devices 
section for this option to be added without removing anything else - 
so I thought that removing anything else just to keep the preferences 
coutn down would not be needed. 

But since you really want it, the "Save Keyboard Shortcuts on Exit"   
is something I never turned off - so as far as I am concerned it 
could be gone and remain always on.
