That sounds like a great idea

I get the impression that the entire KOffice/Krita mix of Import/Open 
Export/Save is handled in a very weird way internally. I had a look at those 
Unknown types when I fixed the export plugin, but I couldn't find their 
Also, and probably related, it seems that I can save krita files to their 
native format, but I can't open them anymore. Debug says only
koffice (lib kofficecore): 
KoDocument::openFile /home/bartcopp/krita/svn/koffice/krita/test.kra 
koffice (lib kofficecore): ERROR: No mimetype found 
for /home/bartcopp/krita/svn/koffice/krita/test.kra
Now test.kra is actually a file saved with krita in the KOffice style of 
files, and when I unzip it, nothing actually looks wrong.

As far as I know, tabs are still in krita. Maybe it would be better to 
postpone the disabling of this to post 1.4, and simply add a warning when the 
user closes a tab (with consent of kde-i18n of course)?

Actually, as far as I know, it is a bug, but not exactly as described. I don't 
exactly know the algorithm, but I think the problem is that normally (I 
guess), the gamma exponent that can be configured lies somewhere in the range 
0-10 or so, whereas the configurable value ranges from 1-600. So the effect 
on the image looks more like some overdone color adjustment...
