You may select

Just hit the arrow-up key and press return. TeXmacs supports multiple
default answers and remembers old answers up to a certain extent.
If you are willing to hack the source code, you may even try to
change the default answer for the exportation of files to yes
(but not for file saving, of course).

If you want to hack the source code; or put a wish at Savannah.
I have no time for this request now.
