I've posted a patch for this at
http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=313#c1 (it's not
committed yet, though).

There is since r587.

This should also be provided by the patch mentioned above - via
TW.target.untitled and TW.target.modified.

No, there isn't any such property (yet). Unfortunately, there are some
traps involved here. But maybe this will come in the future. In the
meantime, I hope the TW.target.saveAll() method works for you.
