want-auto-save: preference variable
Default value: 1
If nonzero, Epsilon periodically saves a copy of each unsaved file.
Bits in this variable control various aspects of auto-saving. The
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.
