The problem is that the time interval to run auto-save-hook is
not configurable exclusively for desktop mode.  If a user wants
to auto-save the desktop less often than to auto-save files
there is no way to do this.

OTOH, I like the simplicity of the auto-saving feature in savehist
that uses just one option `savehist-autosave-interval' to configure the
interval between autosaves, or nil to disable timer-based auto-saving.

Savehist uses `run-with-timer'.  Why not to do the same in desktop mode?
What are the problems with using `run-with-timer'?
