Expanding on what Mark said, the IDE will do this if you have the 
preference set, but the save command invoked from a script won't.

As you have discovered, calling the save command without options will 
save in 7.0 format unless there are widgets in the stack, in which case 
it will save in 8.0 format.

To save in other formats you can either set the stackFileVersion before 
saving or use "with format" option of the save command.
