This is what I was afraid of when I saw the API proposal. I fear that
this could make the use of the new API rather limited. I can easily
imagine 50%+ of end users wanting to the change the save image XML by
altering a disk path and getting a disk path which is longer.

I don't think we should add an API like this unless we can come up
with a plan for addressing this problem which is generally going to
work.
