Sorry about screwing up the addressing on the first reply. 

What I meant was something like: 

auto-save-hooks

Documentation: 
List of functions to be run before auto-saving.
If one of them returns non-nil, then the file is considered to be
already auto-saved and the rest are not called.  

Then the user can do the auto-save any way that he wants.  

Sorry about the confusion; I didn't take the time to read the
auto-save documentation.

Also occurred to me that a possible use for auto-saving into the
current file is when you don't have enough permissions in the
current directory to create a new file.
