Which means that if you reload a snapshot and want to keep it
unmodified you need to do a 'Save as' as the first thing.
It's very easy to forget that.
Maybe files created as snapshots should be marked in some way,
so that loading them doesn't change the current name.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
