No, in other words, if the user's intent isn't clear, the program should ask, so that it doesn't do things the user doesn't want.

Or you could do what has already been suggested and make it possible for the user to indicate his intent by making the default behavior configurable. To make the non-default behavior easily selectable, you could add appropriate OS context menu, command-line and GIMP File menu options for the user to indicate explicitly what it is s/he wants to do in any particular case.

It would seem that even though it would be eminently possible to achieve the functionality that is desired for the target audience without also screwing over people who are harmed by the new behavior, there is no desire to do such a thing, because that would not line up with the "vision" of the application.

It seems clear to me at this point that either you are too invested in your work and backed into a corner at this point to be able to admit that there is any room for improvement, or you really are trying to drive away users who aren't part of your target audience.

So be it. I'm done with this list.
