Like has been pointed out all ready, you should just read it as "since
you are not part of the target user group, you can not expect GIMP to
be optimized for your workflow". However, since your workflow is
secondary, we have done some optimizations for you as well. (See

1. Open a .tiff file
2. Tweak it
3. File -> Overwrite 'yourfile.tiff'
