bug#14512: 24,3; buffer-offer-save doesn't seem to have any effect

I no longer use it much, since I create/kill temporary buffers quite often. But this is the default behavior in most programs, and I suspect many people would want to change it. My 1 year ago self included.

On second thought, there might be a case for prompting for save only on emacs exit, but I think it would be more natural if there was a separate switch to do that, and it was responsible for all

(and (buffer-modified-p) 
     (or (buffer-file-name) 
         buffer-offer-save))

buffers.

On a related note, I get the impression that the prompt being hard coded is a remnant from times when kill-buffer-query-functions didn't exist.

If you want Emacs to

1) offer to save a buffer on exit
2) offer to save a buffer on C-x k

then why not simply make that buffer visit a file?

Because you also probably want

3) some kind of auto-save in case your computer dies while you are
editing the buffer
