Bug report #4304
Show only writable raster and vector formats in Processing "save file" dialogs

Currently "save file" dialogs in Processing show all supported file formats which causes to attempts to write into non-writable format. We should filter the list of formats to write to.

Hello, bug triage...
I think this is difficult to fix because we don't have an easy to use method or function in Python that can extract a list of GDAL drivers that can write to a file.
Perhaps should we add a writableFileRasterFilters() to the QgsProviderRegistry class. Once done, it should be trivial to modify GDAL tools.

Unsure about this: in GRD files, which should be non-writable, are listed in the dropdown menu (BTW: listed twice, this is a separate issue)
when trying to save to GRD format the message (from GDAL) says:
"Golden Software ASCII Grid format", which is writable BUT does not have the GRD extension: http://www.gdal.org/formats_list.html
