[CinCV TNG] Saving project files

By Cinelerra Manual:
"When Cinelerra saves a file, it saves an edit decision list (EDL) of 
the current project but does not save any media. The saved file consists 
of text. It contains all the project settings and locations of every 
edit. Instead of media, the file contains pointers to the original media 
files on disk. For each media file, the XML file stores either an 
absolute path or just the relative path. If the media is in the same 
directory as the XML file, a relative path is saved. If it is in a 
different directory, an absolute path is saved."

Could you make a relative path even when the media is on one (or more) 
subdirectory of the project file?
It may be useful to transfer to another system, media and project file, 
without modifying the XML file (or relink the media with 
Resources->media->Info...).

Example of a work structure:
-----------------------------------
-Folder_CinelerraProjects
  \_Folder_Project-01
    _myProject-01.xml
    \_Folder_Images
    \_Folder_VideoSources
    \_Folder_Audio
      \_Folder_SpeechOver
      \_Folder_Music
    \_Folder_Render

  \_Folder_Project-02
    _myProject-02.xml
    \_Folder_VideoSources
    \_Folder_Audio
    \_Folder_Render
-----------------------------------

Thank you.
