save file with .pl extension by default?

One of the issues I regulary see in my classes that when people write their first perl script in Padre and save it, they don't give an extension to it. In turn Padre does not recognize the file as a Perl script. If they open the file again Padre recognizes the mime-type as the file starts with the sh-bang but there might be a bug in Padre (or maybe it is already fixed) regarding the issue of Padre forgetting the mime-type on save.
In addition I think we should address the expectation of the Windows people that Padre would save the file using the "standard" extension of the language or at least it should warn them about the missing extension.
