Unfortunately, you can't please everyone. You can't even please anyone 
all the time.

There are times where I want Save As to default to the last used folder. 
The main place I want that is if I'm saving documents from the Web using 
a browser.

But when doing a Save As from an existing local document, I nearly 
always want the default directory to be the directory where the original 
file is. *Nearly* always.

I suppose in an ideal world, the computer would predict my mood and know 
exactly which directory to propose. Good luck with that. Firefox does 
something like that by default, choosing the directory according to 
the URL, and I hate it. 

Would this be practical? Perhaps the TDE Save As dialog grow a button to 
return to the Last Saved location.
