Hi Marcel,

This change adds another (2nd) dependency between Collections and System.
I think it would be better if this method were in another package with
initialAnswer: being a parameter.

I also think that the methods with similar name of Model in the Kernel
package do not belong there. They are entirely related to files and not
the Model itself.
Model's subclasses can override #suggestedFileNameForSave, but that
abstraction is clearly not sufficient in case of TranscriptStream, hence
this method. It's also not used at all in Trunk.

I also think there's also a small bug with this method: Model's
implementation handles the case where the selected filename is nil, and I
don't see why that cannot happen here but this method assumes it is always
a string.

Colllections and System appeared back in 2020 (HtmlReadWriter ->
