the thing is that you totally want it until a system crash or power
outage eats your files. it's not that just the new contents are not
saved - your pre-existing files are *gone*. that may be quite annoying
even when you use version control.

come to think of it, it would be acceptable to provide non-fsync mode if
the original file was preserved - i.e., if there was a saving mode which
renames the old file to <file><your-favorite-backup-file-extension-here>
rather than just replacing it.
i'd totally welcome a respective enabler contribution to qsavefile. ;)
