Re: bug#2137: 23.0.60; Saving Rmail buffer does not show the "Saving file ..." message

In an Rmail buffer, type "C-x C-s" to save it: you will almost never
see the usual "Saving file FOO..." message, because buffer-soze,
called by save-buffer, returns the size of the current message, not of
the entire message collection.
The clean way to fix this is with something like `buffer-swapped-with'.
I did not remember the existence of this feature when I recommended
implementing `buffer-swapped-with', so I can't really say "I told you
so." But there is a general tendency that these sorts of features
need to be checked and acted on in various places in the code, and
most of them don't have any hooks.
