You mean keep C-c C-c bound to edit-abbrevs-redefine, but change C-x C-s
to call write-abbrev-file?  Sounds good (tho it'll have to call
edit-abbrevs-redefine before write-abbrev-file beforehand, of course).
Oh and by the way: the abbrev.el file should be (slowly) fixed to use
the "abbrev-" prefix for all functions and commands, so whenever you
introduce a new function/command/variable please use this prefix rather
than the previous style of <verb>-abbrev-<thing>.
