It doesn't. I was embarrassed once to enter a bug report into the QCC 
reporting that a feature didn't work. Mark responded that I'd saved the 
stack in legacy format and used 3.0 features in it. I felt so dumb.

I believe the "save" command just uses the system API and does a blind 
write operation, the same as any other binary file.
