As I wrote, I'm also okay with Someone™ volunteering to reimplement
this option such that it invokes basic-save-buffer instead.
A minor mode that you describe would also be fine, but then it should
probably disable auto-saving if auto-save-visited-file-name is set,
Sounds reasonable. I'll try to come up with something by next weekend. Probably it will be just
(defvar auto-save--timer nil)
(defcustom auto-save-visited-interval 5
:set (lambda (symbol value)
(set-default symbol value)
(timer-set-idle-time auto-save--timer value :repeat))))
(define-minor-mode auto-save-visited-mode nil
(when auto-save--timer (kill-timer auto-save--timer))
(not (and buffer-auto-save-file-name auto-save-visited-file-name)))))))
but it will also need tests and documentation, which take a bit more time.
