an "always save a copy as ... [type] " option

Bug Description

Basically the idea is to have a setting to always
save / export to a particular filetype along with
[Inkscape] SVG. I'm forever saving and the exporting
to PNG, it would be great to have an option in

"always export a copy in " [$FORMAT]

$FORMAT would be a drop down of all formats
available, one option could be ask, another will
be "don't do this". Ask would always provide a list
of format options - the filename would be the same as
for the Inkscape-SVG file.

You could also have this save to a specific folder,
that way a backup copy of each SVG file or a
reference folder of raster images could be built.

You could even push it further and use "convert"
(ImageMagick) if available to set a particular
manipulation to perofmr.

In fact (I know all this from one change idea!) in
e.g. KDE if the folder that you saved the exports too
was a web folder you could automatically update an
online gallery of your work.

I'd love to help with the coding ... but I'm not a
great coder!

Hope this floats someone else boat out there ... will
look out for it and help with testing if it happens.



PS: Awesome version 0.44

I have to agree v0.44 is the best version of Inkscape I've
used to date, the GUI and the other enhancements were worth
the wait!

Good work!
