 'e' might be thought to mean 'exit' in English, which makes me think we also need to make sure this can all be translated. Maybe 'p' for path? Or 'e' for 'elsewhere'? This is getting tricky :)

 I think I'd rather leave off the 'e' option for simplicity - if the user wants to save elsewhere they can hit 'c' and do save() or setcwd() themselves, I'm not sure we need to put extra functionality into the q function.
