Being a geek, I download a lot of stuff; RPMs, tar.gz, mp3s, and zips are my top
categries. They all go in different places. But almost always the same place for
a category. RPMs go to ~/RPMS, tar.gz goes to ~/src/others, etc.

What I'd like to see is a box next "Save to Disk" button in the "helper
applications Dialog that allows you to specify a default directory to go to for
that file type. You would then be given the normal Save Dialog, so you can
choose it yourself.

A further refinement would be to have the save happen automatically if the user
has checked a button called "save automatically" next to the aforementioned box.
So many good ideas, so little time...

My idea is "saveing path by some filetype groups".
example...

Group A
>html files(.htm,.html,.shtml)
Group B
>image files(.gif,.png,.jpg)
Group C
>Arcive files(.zip,.lzh,.tar.gz)
