The rationale behind "" was that a non-zero string may be
misinterpreted by a user/programmer as a real path, when its value
would just be ignored. We could probably change ERC to name buffers
with a fake path like "/foo/bar/baz", but that seems like even more of
a hack. The alternative would be a more elegant way for
basic-save-buffer to decide if it should prompt for a file name or
continue on.
