No. I believe both modes are desirable.

You can bookmark anything viewed in a temporary model and PB will try to
re-create it later when you browse to that URL. But no, there is no
mechanism to auto-save.

Perhaps you could talk more about the application you're imagining?
Maybe other people here are interested in similar applications.

PB actually has a very small feature set. Everything you can do you see
in the user's how-to list on the web site. :-)

As for source code, I'd suggest looking at


That's where things start. The Developer's Guide on the website also has
pointers to where things are in the codebase.
