ok, but aren't you just gambling on luck that the user didn't use any
file arguments being the factor to decide if he should be informed or
not that file 34b of the dam design project is in trouble...

I mean during the day it is rare that I just start
$ emacs
for the fun of it, like I was going to play hanoi or something.
Usually I have some file arguments in mind.

P.S. a new emacs shouldn't quibble about another emacs' autosave file
if that other emacs is still indeed alive, unless of course they try
to edit the same file.
