The basic point is that of data integrity.
Files must not be changed unless the user asks for a change.
When there has not been any such explicit request, and .emacs
is empty, then emacs should not do any helpful polishing.

The current situation, where (after 0 changes) save-buffer
returns "(No changes need to be saved)" and write-file
nevertheless writes a different file, is unfortunate and messy.
