I stand corrected: it doesn't prompt to save, since it was never a
file to begin with. I guess I'm just in the habit of saving when I
want to. Nevertheless, the original point was that Emacs DOES provide
a user-level function to create a new buffer. And it also allows you
to save that buffer as a file -- if you wish.
