      Then saving a new untitled file, the default mechanism is to bring up the "Save to File System" dialog, allowing them to save a file somewhere on their drive.

      This becomes confusing if instead they want to save it into a project.

      Unfortunately, we can not universally add this option to all possible untitled files, but for those derived from our editor classes, we propose to do the following:

      1. override the default behavior in AbstractDecoratedTextEditor.performSaveAs()
      2. For untitled files, pop up our own dialog asking is the user wishes to save on the file system or in a project (radio button selection). Depending on the choice, we can then pop up the correct subsequent Save As... dialog.

      Extra points if we can somehow embed the other Save as dialogs in the "choice" dialog, preventing the user from having to answer two subsequent dialogs.

      Also suggest that we could have the user "remember this choice" if they almost always want to do one or the other.
