Well, how shall we make sure we saw that important message? What if we
reached down to scratch our ankle during the one second or whatever we
were given to have noticed that message before it went away or was
covered up by some other message?

No big deal if #backup_file# exists for you perhaps, but I want emacs
to make sure I am aware of it!

You could ask the user if he wants to recover("yes") or blunder on
anyway("no"), "or hit C-g" to not open the file at all.
