I also think the default should be relative to the patch. I am not
quite sure now to handle abstractions, that's worth discussing more.
I don't have time to work on it now, but if someone posts a bug in
the tracker (or feature request, if you think that's better), I'll
try my hand at it later.
It's always useful to include a link to web archive to related
discussions like this in the bug tracker.
On a related note, for this release, I made Save As default to the
Home folder (~/), what do people think about that?
