Bug Description

Anti-alias in exportation can mean a data-loss. The old request [1] asks for option, I request a feature to kill this automatic-antialising because it tends to result into poorer quality, antialising should be done only once in the deployment -- not during development -cycle. ImageMagick's `$ mogrify -antialias ./DeploymentDir/hello.png` with a bash -loop should handle antialiasing fine, InkScape needs no clutter -features -- if someone wants this automatically in InkScape, s/he should add some kind of macro to do this.

I phrased this request firstly open-endedly like `"Kill transformations such as anti-aliasing for bitmap export"` where my goal was to get all data-loss-prone -operations removed in the raster -exportation, it looks like Inkscape has more them [2].
