Yeah, the Messsage buffers are kinda special, I guess, in that they're
basically the only Gnus buffers what aren't generated somehow.

So handling them the same way as Emacs does on shutdown does make some
sense...  On the other hand, even if we prompt the user, they're still
saved to a pretty obscure place (i.e., the drafts group), so I'm not
sure we're gaining anything by prompting the user.
