Is there any way in Safari (6 on Mountain Lion) to have it remember a different download folder per website?

So if I visit my bank and download a statement I can pick my /finance/ folder to download to and have it remember that location for future visits. Meanwhile I can go to basecamp and have anything I download there go straight to /work/

In Firefox there's a secret flag you can set that allows this behaviour, is there any way to do the same thing in Safari or through an extension?

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to do it in Safari. The only things you could do is use a Shell script to move stuff around (based on file types or so). Or you can use the Automator to define rules for your download folder. A good alternative, which specifically focusses on file management is Hazel.
