Yes in the way that I didn't know about it before :-).

  No as X m (without M-&!) shows a similar behaviour even
with gnus-prompt-before-saving set to 'always.

  Big no as for example X m only allows a directory to spec-
ify and fills it with filenames of its own liking. But sup-
pose I'd like to take the image/jpeg or nth part to /dir1 as
nr.jpg and the image/html or mth part to /dir2 as
(nr^2).html and the application/pdf part to pipe to cmd3 -
well, basically I'd like to be able to do mail processing
without having to resort to Perl.
