[PD] Move a file from within Pd?

Can anyone suggest a way to move a file in the user's filesystem from within Pd without loading it into memory?

My use case is that I am using [writesf~] to record audio to disk, and I want to allow users to “save” the audio file to somewhere else. Clearly the audio could be very large, so I want to avoid using soundfiler to read into memory and then write back out again. This is from an application that uses Pd as a backend so expecting the user to manually move the file is not an option.

Any solutions (including use of externals) welcome.
