It depends on a person's workflow when retouching photos. If gimp is
used from scratch without preliminary viewing photos in some browser, or
some kind of retouching is used to decide if the file worth to stay, it
would be better to allow simple deletion of selected file within GTK
file chooser. Otherwise user needs to switch to file manager to delete
the file each time.
