CubeMapGen suggestion

It would be very helpful if there was a way in the CubeMapGen GUI to batch-load six bitmaps all in one go, instead of loading each direction one-by-one. Maybe there could be support for the 3ds Max convention...

+X = name_RT.ext
-X = name_LF.ext
+Y = name_UP.ext
-Y = name_DN.ext
+Z = name_BK.ext
-Z = name_FR.ext

I use CubeMapGen almost daily, for converting skyboxes into diffuse cubes, or for fixing seams in diffuse cubes generated by other means. It can get pretty tedious loading the sides one by one, every time. I would use the command line, but that assumes I know what settings I want to use, there's no visual feedback.

It would also be a big help to be able to save/load the UI settings, or at least be able to set my own defaults for the GUI options.

Thanks for listening!
