OK, back to our problem:

Save file /tmp/makefile? (y, n, !, ., q, C-r or C-h) y
[note lots of nice choices offered]

Suspicious line 4. Save anyway (y or n) n
[no Suspicious things for me... slam on the brakes...]
[and then it runs the compile command anyway... ugh.]
So please also give the user a "q" option too to chose from.

I mean we are already used to C-x C-c asking:
Active processes exist; kill them and exit anyway? (yes or no)
[If I say no, it doesn't exit.  It could {not kill} and {exit anyway}
if it were not user-friendly.]

OK, sorry.  I was just worried all this bug fixing might be boring so
wanted to add flavor to the discussion.
