The "Save site as template" option for sites with publishing feature is not supported from Microsoft.

Its not supported for 2007 or 2010 officially. But many have tried using it with certain precautions like publishing all the pages and files before saving as template, etc. And it has worked too. But its never guaranteed from Microsoft and the pros or cons are not documented.
