It's about dead centre on topic, and yes.

I suddenly find myself pondering if letting a user save a colour 
converted copy of a pic (with image effects applied) as TIFF or JPEG 
might not be a good idea, actually. Then again, there are LOTS more 
useful and important things to do, and it's not like that'd be a 
particularly useful function for use with Scribus.
