Photoshop: Idea for fast saving of images/layers (for web designers/coders)

So I think this would be a great feature especially for coders.

When you right click on a layer there would be an option to "save as" and it would just save that layer (as png/jpg/ect..) instead of having to copy the layer, paste into new document just to save it - also could save a group of layers as a sprite.

For example..
Say I have an icon I want to save while coding. I just right click the corresponding layer, go to "save as", and a save option pops up (layer name would be the default save as text) and it reduces to layer dimensions (so if it was a 64x64 icon it would save as 64x64) and saves the image in the selected directory.

BTW I should note I'm aware of the script "Export layers to files".. Takes way to long, and not all layers need to be an image/saved. This would be for individual layer saving.
