Accidental work loss is the main reason I dislike the new model.
I don't much mind the Save vs. Export split, or remembering when I
need to type Ctrl-E vs. Ctrl-S -- but it's frustrating that I no
longer have any way to tell whether all my JPGs have been
sav^H^H^Hexported and therefore it's safe to quit GIMP. With
the 2.8 model I actually have more risk of work loss, not less.

If you forgot to export as JPG but saved the image as XCF, then you can 
reopen Gimp and produce your JPG. Trouble, yes, data loss, no. If you 
"save" to JPG but forget to  save as XCF, less trouble in some cases, 
but data loss in others.

I save my edited photos in xcf (or xcf.bz2) and I have a script that
converts them automatically to all formats I often use (jpegs in some
sizes (converting to sRGB on the fly), tiff in the original size). It
just scans all xcf files and checks if all converted files exist and are
newer than the xcf file. To me, it's the most user-friedly approach.

Currently, the script is quite a mess tuned to my preferences, but it's
maybe a good idea to make it somewhat more generic and add a
configuration wizard to it. If I have some time and manage to write
something useful, I'll post a link...
