I know, that was not what I was saying, it's an API to store data in 
File. The point is, that you can get File from FileSystem API as well,
FileSaver API is already implemented and that did not solve anything.
FileSaver API is insufficient to solve this issue, what we need is file 
entry that actually represent exactly that file on
user's disk, not in some pseudo file system.
