Hi Matt,

  The 2 letter keyboard shorcuts are your friends.  Shortcut “Ss” which can be invoked with command “ac Ss” saves the current state using the current session file name.  Unfortunately I see that if there is no current session file name it throws an error.  But maybe this is still useful to you.  If not and you need it to show a dialog in the cases when there is no current session file name, I can fix that in the daily build.
