You mean the "make it a user preference" one?  To me, the simplest compromise is to simply tweak the existing dialog message from an "I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that" message to an OK/Cancel prompt, to which the only dev response was to label it "fudging".  Yes, it sort of is, but that's what compromise is about, right?

But perhaps a better thing to remember is that when the devs refer to "safe" and "unsafe" workflows, I think these are meant to be terms with precise technical meanings and NOT a value judgement on whether the person is using GIMP "correctly".
