  In case of using file URL, I would change the variable name (like `_saveDialogFileURL` or something) and use `selectURL()` after creating the dialog object. The constructor, according to documentation, takes URL to the directory. It works OK now, but in theory can change in the future.
  When using `selectURL()`, home directory could be always used in the constructor, and the function would be called only if `_saveDialogFileURL` is not empty.

Good idea. It asks for overwrite confirmation, the file name is already selected (so typing another name takes as much work as when there were no name). No downsides.
