The user can forget to call dired-execute later.  But what about
C-x C-q asking yes/no question about accepting the changes,
and an option to disable such a question?  There is already
a function `wdired-check-kill-buffer' asking a question,
so a similar function `wdired-check-finish-buffer' could be
added to finish wdired by C-x C-q safely.
