Syncing with a folder with .txt files

I absolutely loved this program after installing it, but I haven't been able to fully replace ResophNotes/Simplenote because I do everything with *.txt files (on writemonkey, on my phone, on notepad++, etc.). I realize that this would cause some data loss, but could it at least be an option to save as *.txt? Either way this is a wonderful little program and I'll keep it on my laptop just in case. Thanks.

But the question is, how would you navigate in hundred of notes stored as separate files? On a PC it's a job for CintaNotes, but on the mobile?
- Data is portable and safe. I know pretty sure .txt files will always be readable.
- I can easily edit notes in other applications
- I can easily add files from outside, e.g. from my phone or from another application.
Search in nvALT is extremely fast, I can even do simple formatting (bold, italic), which is saved in a separate file, and it sync to simplenote. In other words, I don't think saving notes as plain text necessarily compromises other features.
Cintanotes is the best replacement for nvALT I could find, and I make backups by exporting to plain text regularly, but an option to store notes as plain text would be very welcome.
It's hardly possible that CN will migrate from SQLite to plain-text files, however it is very possible that it will be able to sync the database with a folder with TXT files, similar to Simplenote sync.
