New submission from Pavel Kosina <geon at post.cz>:

There should not be necessity to write filename *with extension* at the
saving dialog. It should be enough, at least on Windows, to put there
just "hello" and get "hello.py". It is really complication especially
for beginners. If they, as they are used to from another programs, put
there just "hello", it is saved without extension ".py" what have 2
result: they cannot see any icons at that file and they are not able to
run in, cause python.exe is bind with ".py".

Hoping its not duplicate I haven't found anything like this here.
