I personally don't see much use for a "save for web" plugin. Any
functionality that it would have should already exist in other save
dialogs, or be added if they are currently unimplemented. A save
meta-dialog that can compare multiple formats (gif vs jpeg vs png) is
a plausible addition, but theres no reason to restrict it to
web-friendly options, or to duplicate functionality that already
exists in the format-specific plugins.
