Default PDF Filename

As a programmer, what would I need to know and look up (and where) in order to add a timestamp (with punctuation deleted or modified, or maybe just the epoch time) to the default filename used for exporting from LibreWriter to PDF? I'd be happy either with being able to change the default appearing in the standard dialog or with being able to create a button that would save directly without a dialog, just using the same directory as the source file and and injecting the timecode into the existing source file name when creating the PDF.

What method would be most resilient when doing version updates?
