Actually I fail to see the real advantage for KYRA here, since I would still 
then need to check most of the code to see if there's an execution of 
cutscenes etc. which would prevent proper saving and set the save/load 
allow flag accordingly there.

For example when walking towards a room exit (currently GMM save/load is 
disabled there), would only return to the main run loop after the room 
change is done, so if the user would then save/load via the GMM and I would 
handle it next time in a safe spot in the main run loop, the character 
would first walk into the next scene and then it would save/load.I actually 
would find that as user most annoying.

I'm rather for the current way to only allow save/load in the GMM when 
there's no cutscene/interaction/etc. ongoing.
