I wrote a companion routine called XVarExport which will
(well, should :-) allow you to interactively select and export
any variables to an IDL save file. It could be a little memory
intensive for large datasets, since it must copy your data
to local variables prior to the SAVE, but I couldn't see any
other way to do it.
