Summary0000762: Allow saving without changing extension

When you try to save a module which doesn't have the proper extension, openMpt add the extension at the end.
This is not a good behaviour as there was probably a reason if the file had that extension to begin.

The patch attached affect only "save", and not "save as" so it doesn't break anything.

TagsNo tags attached.

    Allow saving with the original name, without appending the .IT extension!

There is actually a good reason for the current behaviour - Namely saving files that were imported from formats that OpenMPT cannot save. For example, assuming that you load sometune.j2b and hit Ctrl+S, it really should be resaved as and not sometune.j2b. What kind of usage scenario do you envision for your patch?

In my case I need to rename the modules as .bytes, as if I leave them as IT they are recognized as audio files by Unity3d and I can't parse them as binary with my library and unity internal module player is too limited and buggy.

Maybe an option in the advanced settings then?

Hm, I think to have the best of both worlds, I could take your patch and then set m_ShowSavedialog = true for all files that would need to be re-saved in a different format.
