That makes sense, but for those of us who do it right the first time being 
able to create a query and name it and put it on our bottom bar all at the 
same time was very handy.  So you've gone from:

- get it right with one click on one screen


- get it right on one screen, see the expected results, and then click to 
save/name it.

Admittedly this is much easier for newbs to understand, but I hope 
somebody produces a patch that reverses the dumbing down for folks who are 
used to and like the old way.
