An enhancement that is often requested is automatic saving of files in a directory specific
to that type.  This is so simple I think it would be a waste of your talents.  If I wanted
it (I don't) I can see how it might be done in BASIC as an extension, which would trap the
existing Save and Save as dialogs.

I think it could be a Summer of Code project.
