Hi Stefan, et al,

I'd like to submit salv.el [0] to GNU ELPA.  The readme describes it
like so:

  Salve, v. t. & i.

  To save, as a ship or goods, from the perils of the sea.

  --Webster, 1913

  Q: How does this package differ from other ones that automatically
     save buffers?

  A: Salve is a buffer-local minor mode, rather than being a global
     mode.  It is activated in buffers the user wants to be saved,
     rather than in all buffers (requiring the user to exclude ones that
     aren't to be saved).  It uses per-buffer idle timers, rather than a
     global timer.  It only runs a timer when a buffer is modified after
     being saved, rather than constantly.  Because of these
     characteristics, it's simple and lightweight.

Please see the attached patch to elpa-packages.
