I noticed the following regarding

  1) auto-saving does not save contents
     - solution: put (auto-save-mode 1) before or after (not
       sure which) the call to org-set-local in the
       following lines in org-remember:

        #         (expand-file-name
        #          (format-time-string "remember-%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S")
        #          org-remember-backup-directory))
        #     (save-buffer)
        #     (org-set-local 'auto-save-visited-file-name t))
        #   (when (save-excursion

  2) save-buffer is called before there are any contents
     - this causes files without useful content to stick
       around in the dir if the buffer is killed or
     - solution: don't save the buffer; let auto-saving do
       that work.  will this work?
  3) if you have auto-save-file-name-transforms set,
     auto-saving is done according to that variable instead
     of saving in place.
     - solution: is this an emacs bug?  i am not sure.  the
       auto-saving should be done in place, saving in
       org-remember-backup-directory and not saving in the
       place where the transforms variable tells it to save.
       perhaps each user can kludge transforms or perhaps
       emacs needs fixing?  i have reached debugging ability


Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialism is causing death and severe suffering
worse than MS.  Greed is corrupting science into foul nonsense.  Anybody can
get the disease at any time permanently.  Do science and justice matter to
you?  http://www.meactionuk.org.uk/What_Is_ME_What_Is_CFS.htm
