    I'd tend to agree: setting it to `ask' is fine, but only the user
    should set it to t if she likes it, not the major mode.

I tend to think it is wrong for major modes to set this at all.
So what if the C standard says files must end in a newline?
We would still say that any compiler that actually requires this
ought to be changed.  So why bother users about it?

Of all the modes that currently set require-final-newline to t,
are there any in which the file really won't work if it lacks
a final newline?
