Instead it must simply refuse to save as PNG, offering a Save As
dialog to save as SVG.
Are you in any way against GIMP's new behavior for 2.7/8? Basically,
Save/Save As would only offer SVG options (probably only Inkscape SVG
variants) and everything else must be performed via an Export operation
since there is editing data losss (not like our current one, but
basically a different type of "Save As" dialog which would then chain
into the png, pdf, eps, jpg, tif, etc special dialogs when those exist).
I guess, do we append a correct the file extension to .svg with a
warning or refuse to save with the reason given within a pop-up dialog?
For the record, I haven't tried to defy GIMP with their new handling, so
I'm unsure of what they do atm (I assume it is appending a workable
extension to the file). I will report back results if no one states
ideas for what they think the proper handling would be otherwise.
