In general I like your patch. A few more questions, though.

 - Why is desktop-locals-to-save automatically buffer local? I can
understand why should it be buffer-local, but automatically? I'd think
that most users/modes are simply going to add to the default value of
the variable. Or am I missing something?

 - Why is necessary to have `desktop-clear-preserve-buffers-regexp'
and `desktop-clear-preserve-buffers'? The first one cannot be modified
programmatically (there's no general way to automatically modify the
regexp), so modes trying to extend the list of preservable buffers
will have to add to `desktop-clear-preserve-buffers', which does not
accept regexps. I think it would be better to have just one list
(accepting regexps) and then combine them into a single regexp on

 - You say:

Wouldn't suffice to add the requeriment that when a mode wants to add
to `desktop-*-mode-handlers', the added function *must* be autoloaded?
