You missed my point, Mark. Moving to another application to do the conversion takes time. I want to minimize the time I spend, not spend the extra time.
It's about 15 seconds:
convert myfile.png myfile.jpg; rm myfile.png
I think there's an ImageMagic toolset, which includes convert, for Windows too. It's 15 seconds.
Let's say the Inkscape programmers added a conversion to jpg. That's one more lump of code that could have bugs or security violations. The more complex and entangled a program gets, the more bug-prone it becomes.
I use claws-mail (for now), but because it uses so many libraries and does so many things for so many people, it has a bug that, after I access my inbox, the mouse disappears everytime a popup happens, *on any application*. I'm thinking of switching to the ultra-simplicity of mutt so this stuff doesn't happen.
How many times a day do you need to export to .png? Multiply that by 15 seconds. Now ask yourself if that time is worth having a featureful yet stable program.
