This is a slightly different situation that what we've
discussed. Previously, I understood it to be merely saving playlist
positions so that they can be restored later. But now this is described
as a case of hardening Emms against an Emacs crash.

Therefore, what you are describing sounds more similar to Emacs'
auto-save feature.

What that be a good way of describing it?
