I think this must be a misunderstanding. No one is talking about saving
changes without the user saying so. The purpose of the patch is that
Emacs should be able to ask the user at logooff/shutdown to save the
changes. The situation now is that the changes are thrown away if they
are not saved before.

If Microsoft's guide lines are what someone stated here, maybe the
reason for them is that the shutdown process is considered to have
higher priority than a user's unsaved data? If that is the case,
halting that process maybe isn't such a good idea. Someone said that
the autosave is enough and I agree. Your argument against it, that
someone might edit the file from some other program before using the
auto save data, does not seem like a very likely scenario. Or is it?
