No repetitive task (happily !). I create images. It's just art... Ex, I

to use, compared to 2.6....

But that would seem to be something the current systems is good for:

- export any intermediate state to a different file and format
- save in xcf to continue working on the image at a later time

This does not happen exactly like your description.
I posted this message on Debian list:

Save= save the same file (same name) after modifying this file
Ex1: I open house.png, I change contrast, luminosity then I save it
I use only one key to do it: "s"
It takes 1/5 second

Save as= save this file with another name, another extension
Ex2: I open house.png, I change contrast, luminosity, I delete some details I don't like with rubber then save it under another name like house-2 because it's a different version.
I use only one key to save it under "house-2.png": "u"
Ex3: I open house.png. I need .xcf version of this file to build a new image with layers, etc.
I use only one key to save it under "house.xcf": "u"

Very quick and simple....

For me, "export" word is useless and confusing. Export to what? To jpeg, png, xcf, tiff ? It depends on the file where you start.
You could start with a jpeg and want to export to .xcf, or the contrary....
"Save as" function is clear: only one key to use and you change only the extension or file name. It's the gimp-2.6 behavior.
