Full save when out of memory

I rather like the way NetSurf does a full save when you can't download
all the images because of lack of memory. I came across a Japanes site
with 186 images on one page, most of them big ones. I quit as many
apps as I could but even so there wasn't enough room.
I did a full save and noticed that the index file held the absolute
urls for images that weren't downloaded. I was able to delete the tags
for images I already had and load the page again to get the next
tranche. Three such operations were necessary before I got all the
Would it be possible to have a full save in which all the images were
stored on the hard disc even if they couldn't be rendered at the same
time? Or perhaps a "Save target as..." option on a link which would do
the same? As far as I can see "Download target" will only save the
object itself i.e. one image or the page source.
