[squeak-dev] request on Workspace contents to/from file

Hi Timothy,

that ".text" extension stems from some old code and how workspaces in a VMMaker image are managed.

Not having a file extension is okay on Linux and macOS but unusual on Windows platforms.

One good thing about this file extension is that you cannot overwrite important files by accident. So, you can have that "Squeak.image" workspace saved in a file "Squeak.image.text".

Maybe we can collect more perspectives on how to map Workspace window titles to file names here.
