My previous suggestion was that save-abbrevs's options not change, and
abbrevs-changed would be set to 'trivially if abbrevs had changed trivially
only (only the use count). this would require a lot of options for saving
abbrevs however. I think you mean to have save-abbrevs have an extra option
of 'trivially but this is ambiguous as to whether it's silent or not.

How about a new variable save-abbrevs-trivially which would affect the
behavior of updating the abbrevs-changed value.
