I didn't mean to say that I don't like it. I do see its merits. Ideally in a
world where users do all of their work in emacs, it is certainly better than
the old behavior. I just gave an example where the old auto-revert did exactly
what the users wanted to have. I think other users may eventually run into a
similar problem, i.e. the have to use some (GUI) tool, that they can't invoke
from inside of emacs and that interacts with files they have loaded in emacs.
Thus I think Luc's patch would just be perfect and it is a small and simple
