Also works with dmgs.

Just out of curiosity, I tested to see if this would work using a DMG. Sure enough, if you create a dmg and mount it and then assign Safari to download to somewhere in the mounted image, then Safari will always mount that dmg and download into it.

This could have some security purposes if the dmg was encrypted - users of your computer would have to type a password before downloading files! However, I'm not sure if there is a way to prevent them from simply changing the download location in the browser preferences...so maybe this would only fool the dumbest of users.

I thought this was interesting.
