Save for Web using layer names

I am using the Save for Web command (Illustrator CS2) to export layers to CSS so that each layer is saved as a different jpg.  The only issue I have is that I want the layer name to be part of the file name, but layer name is not an option when I look at the "Edit Output settings" dialog for saving files.  Is there anyway I can do this?

For example. My file name is flower.ai  and I will have 20 different layers (each containing a different color of the same image) and want the exported file to be flower-scarlet.jpg, flower-cranberry,jpg, etc. Right now I am looking at renaming all the files manually.  

Thanks in advance

Christine

Thank you so much, this worked like a charm. I ended up upgrading to CS5 yesterday and this works really well.
