buffer-offer-save is for killing Emacs or save-some-buffers, to catch
buffer killing use kill-buffer-query-functions. We could probably make
the docs a bit more explicit about this.
Or maybe we should enhance buffer-offer-save to cover the buffer killing
case too, it seems a bit silly to require setting both.
