[Gimp-user] Thank you developers, for your patience.

In my humble opinion, the "quid" of the question regarding the new save / export policy, relies on the fact 
that the new behaviour reflects a change in the intended audience for the project: the old "load JPEG + edit 
+ save JPEG" serves perfectly to a casual user, who just needs a very basic image editor; while the new 
"import JPEG + edit + save XCF + export JPEG" matches the flow of a power user, who uses GIMP to the full of 
its capabilities.

What all that people who complain does not seem to understand is that GIMP can no longer accommodate the 
needs of casual users without compromising the needs of power users, and those power users are the intended 
userbase for the project. Yes, some simple tasks are harder now, but complex tasks are easier, and GIMP was 
made to deal with complex tasks. Perhaps that people needs to be very politely told: "Sorry, but GIMP is no 
longer for you; please, use something different".

Just my two cents.
