I interpret this as "gimp should learn over time which format I prefer
to use when exporting each particular image, and after 10 times should
default to the requested format" but I think that's proably not what's
really meant, as it'd be incredibly annoying.
Note also this is not a professional user, as she/he is preferring a
lossy format, and hence is not in the gimp target user group :-)
I suggest a preference,
default export format:
[same as imported file]
[same as last export]
. . .
but that after you export a file once the same format you chose alst
time should be offered as the default the next time you export that
file, same as for non-png.
Not suggesting it be done before 2.8; there are some filename and export
bugs in there to be fixed too after 2.8, with files reverting to
Untitled after you export them. But I think not critical bugs.
