Maybe we should do that, but before we do, we should ask the users
whether they mind.  Maybe some people have good reasons to use it.

Stephen, what was your motive for using it?

If I work on a tex-Document with some includes and some graphics, a
directory can get pretty crowded, thus I don't want to have further
files which are pretty useless to me.  The only useful situation I can
imagine for having a separate file for auto-saving is if the System,
Machine or Application crashes while emacs does autosaving.
This sounds rather unlikely to me.  Further more I do always backup my
Work after I finished a days work on to different media thus I can
afford the risk which auto-saving in the file in use causes.  But
I wouldn't mind if this function disappears.  If it would work it would
just be a "nice to have".

best regards
