My use case is not an all-or-nothing one - I just want less noise when
running emacs -batch, so every unwanted line less helps, even if there
are still some.

But Eli has a point. If this is used when Emacs is crashing, I'd rather
not make it less reliable. But it already checks if a variable is set
for auto-saving. Would it then be an idea to make this a lisp variable
so it can be set from lisp, not only from C?
