Options for exporting to disk

I've exported some 300 books to a folder for reading on my mobile phone, using the "Export specific format: TXT" function. They all end up in one folder in the format "Title - Author.txt".

Is there some way to customize the naming, e.g. "Author - Series [no]. - Title.txt"? That would make for more convenient browsing, and displaying the series is necessary for me to be able to read the books in the correct order.

Just a suggestion, can we use XPaths (or something similar) for the exported filenames instead of fixed options? Would it also be possible to include support for folders?

e.g.
Code:
%author/(%series/%series %series_no - )?%title
would output to:
Code:
J.K. Rowling/Harry Potter/Harry Potter 01 - Philosopher's Stone
J.K. Rowling/Harry Potter/Harry Potter 02 - Chamber of Secrets
J.K. Rowling/Harry Potter/Harry Potter 03 - Prisoner of Azkaban
Stephen King/Nightmares and Dreamscapes
I think using variable-based naming would be good since each person has their own preferred folder/file naming structure.

Would it also be possible for the Save to Disk to allow for directories that use the /Tag and Author for directory structure like some of the readers do?

The jetbook seems to have a really slow USB interface so would be nice to be able to setup with Save to disk onto an SD card.

basically save to disk will have access to most of the metadata and you will be able to use it in setting up the template.
