I had the idea of doing this:

(defun byte-recompile-directory (directory &optional arg force limit-buffer-saving)


If forth argument LIMIT-BUFFER-SAVING is 'directory, only files within
DIRECTORY would be saved.  When LIMIT-BUFFER-SAVING is t no existing buffers
would be checked for modification.

But I found out out that having LIMIT-BUFFER-SAVING with value t like this would not work without an accompanying change to byte-recompile-file - since byte-recompile-file already checks whether there's a buffer for that file and that buffer is modified. So, since I don't think that doing changes to byte-recompile-file is the best idea, here's my current version.

Also, note that the check in byte-recompile-file actually makes calling save-some-buffers somewhat redundant.

Best Regards,
