rename file name in finder

Description

when you do 'save as', the filename with the suffix are selected. Normal finder behaviour today is that only the name is selected. Leaving the .lisp (in this case) out of the renaming. I think clozure should adapt this behaviour.

It's not clear how the Finder's "rename" behavior has much to do with what portion of the proposed name in a "Save" or "Save As" panel should be selected, but TextEdit.app:

  1. provides the default extension for the document type (so "Untitled" would have a proposed name of "Untitled.lisp", as would "Untitled.txt")
  1. highlights/selects the name (but not the extension) in the "Save As" panel.

If anyone's curious about how to do that selection (I didn't know and Googled it), a method is described in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2663309/nssavepanel-selecting-part-of-file-name
