Would it be useful to add saving the buffer contents to session.el
instead? So any buffers with a visible name (not starting with SPC or
`*') are saved as part of your session? session.el already saves the
user's place in the buffer so this is probably not too hard to add.
It feels like it could be useful functionality, for information that's
useful but not yet permanent, like temporary notes or code snippets.
