BTW, how 'bout optimizing disk writes like savehist does: only save the
new desktop file if it's different from the previous one.  That doesn't
save you from generating the new file's content in a buffer, of course,
but still.

I was previously unaware of savehist-mode. What's the point of having both it and the history-saving functionality of desktop? Wouldn't it be better to remove that functionality from desktop and let users use savehist-mode instead? (Or vice versa.)
