[squeak-dev] Squeak 5 all-in-one OS X image saving/sources

On my iMac, with the Squeak 5 all-in-one I get a rather annoying issue if I want to 
a) save an image other than buried deep in the package bowels; it would be nice if we could provide an option for saving an image outside the current home directory. 
b) after saving an image, extracting it + changes to where I wanted it to live, the system reported finding no sources file because it was expecting to find it at ‘directory containing all-in-one package’ and it was buried deep in the package bowels.

That seems to me to be a rather infelicitous combination, especially for a new user; "hell I just saved this image thing and now I can’t find it anywhere!” I imagine we need to add another sources-path option to handle this but maybe there is some mac bundle magic involved too?
