want-auto-save: preference variable

Default value: 0

If nonzero, Epsilon periodically saves a copy of each unsaved file. Bits in this variable control various aspects of auto-saving. The 2 bit makes auto-saving more verbose, with a message every time Epsilon auto-saves a file. The 4 bit prevents Epsilon from deleting the auto-save file once the corresponding file has been saved. When Epsilon exits normally, if auto-saving is on, it deletes any auto-saved file associated with every file you're editing, even if it wasn't created by the current session. The 8 bit prevents this.
