Yes and no, imho. That the file system is slow in saving a file does
not mean that some other application has done the save. Does it?

This could be an option but I like auto-revert for output files. Would
it be more "correct" to have auto-revert as buffer-local?  

How does auto-revert check if it is emacs itself or another that has
saved a file? Does it keep an internal variable for the time of last
save inside emacs? Can this store the time after the compression
