Marcel :

- storing actions in the DB will be a nightmare both from a development and usability standpoint. I want my raw files untouched, and I want to be able to easily copy it along with whatever edits I've done, so the external file is really the only viable solution.

- regarding saving, as a user the last thing I want to be bother with is an implementation detail such as "keep the original or not ?". Always keep the original, if I want a processed file then I'll explicitly export it (like in Bibble). If you have to store images of intermediate steps, then do it. Disk space is cheap (forget about the complains "oh but I only have 10Gb", let's be realistic - if you're serious about photography, you'll get yourself a decent HD, and by the time this feature is implemented, HDs in the terabyte range will be available for $100).
