One thing I find myself doing is exploiting the Alt-Tab bug so I can exit the World of Goo stage without saving. I've been blowing up my tower and toying around with different building patterns, but I don't want to give up my cloud!

Agreed, a 'Exit without saving' option would be nice (or just an Exit option, which then asks you if you want to save)

Maybe you get a sign showing your 'best effort' and your cloud reflects the same?  This would give you the ability to experiment without taking you off the leader board.  FWIW you should have to maintain your creation for a certain period of time before the height is recognized.  I'm not sure if this happens now but if it does it isn't obvious (at least to me).

I have thought quite a bit about allowing 'save files' in WoGCo and I'm undecided at this point.  As a metagame WoGCo follows different (possibly suboptimal) rules from the main game.  The bizarre restrictions and capabilities in WoGCo make it an interesting challenge.  To remove too many of them would be to remove much of its novelty.

  Alt + enter -  Go into screen mode, and Alt + enter to go back in.
