Some changes to the topology saving patch:

Thanks, these work well in my testing.  But regarding this one:

* Don't automatically add a file name extension to the user's name.

I realize that it was broken before this change because it would add
the extension even if there already was one.  But maybe we should
still add the extension when none at all is specified?  Many Windows
programs, including Microsoft Word, do this.  It seems more likely
that the user expects an extension to be added than that the want to
create a PDF, PNG, PS or SVG file without any extension.

If you don't want to add the extension by default, perhaps we could
just give a message such as "add .png extension to filename?" when
someone tries to save w/o extension.

Also, perhaps the default file type should be SVG rather than PNG?

It would be nice if the "save as type" field was in a more prominent
location in the save dialogue, but I'm guessing that isn't something
we can easily control.  And it's not worth a bunch of effort over.
