You can save projects in scratch by putting them in a certain folder.

(1) Click save

(2) When the save dialog comes up, click the "Desktop" button on the left.

(3) Type the name of your project, and click OK

The Desktop shortcut goes to
/home/olpc/isolation/1/uid_to_home_dir/10000/data, which I guess you
can save to from within Scratch.
