Emacs already tries to DTRT so this overrides it when the user wants or
it can't guess accurately.  See
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.help/66789 for the original post.
I think (from looking at the code) that doing it without a variable
would require much more complicated code, and the benefit would be
small.  I could certainly be wrong, though.
