Yes, but not with the current mhonarc code base.  I.e.  You have to
do some coding to make it happen.

Possibly, but there may be other parts of mhonarc that this can adversly
affect.  I think doing things so custom filenaming can be done, but if
you introduce a directory portion, things can break, like with the
resolution of various resource variables.

If you are serious about implementing a solution, I recommend subscribing
to mhonarc-dev for any further discussions.
