Oh, I didn't even know that was possible (or is that what the "Settings"
button in save dialogs does?). I've been thinking about that (though having
Replicants in mind), because that would be a nice addition to save dialogs.
I always found it a bit inconvenient that there is a "Settings" button to
open the translator settings. Changes for this one save-action would also
alter the defaults.
It may be better to have a save-action specific translator setting hidden
with an expander widget in the save dialog.
Also worth considering: A pop-up menu on top of every translator setting
view to save settings (plus a "Defaults", "Save current setting..." (opening
a naming alert), and "Delete current setting" items).
With possible more saved settings for every translator, those should then be
moved to config/settings/translators/
