Or, like I've done - install both ;)  Sometimes when I *know* it's
just going to be a one-shot operation and I don't give a damn about
the source file*, I'll right-click and open in 2.6 instead of 2.8.

The downside of this is that I'm having to remember both behaviors.
But I'm getting used to it and will probably stick with 2.8 only when
next I upgrade my OS.


* for example: crappy JPEG, crop to some text, maybe chop letters
apart, convert to grayscale, levels, save as PNG, upload to WTF font
identifier.  If disk space weren't cheap, I'd delete both the source
and destination afterward: they are of no further use.  In 2.8 I close
without saving.
