Yes, you will need to stay on the diet.

iPhoto doesn't create the original file until you edit your picture in some way, including rotation.

But I have to say, I'm in the minority here I think. I actually like this feature. But I'm working with multiple libraries, often stored on external FireWire drives. So I see how this feature could be irritating to those who helplessly watch their primary hard drive fill up with images.
