A simple cron job - 'find' with date and filename tests - would do the
trick, and might be quicker to write than a plug-in.  Also, for a
short time you'd be able to go back and re-edit the XCF if needed, and
retain any extras - masks, layers, etc not present in the TIFF.  It
might even be a time *saver* if you think about it that way.

Or writing a simple plugin to save the current file as TIFF,
overwriting the original, with a fixed set of options should not take
8 hours.  I'd guess an hour, or maybe two at the outside.

But I don't have the free time myself - as a matter of fact, I should
get back to work right now instead of reading mailing lists ;)
