Right.  Some modes are chatty at startup and hides warnings you're
interested in.

It's perfectly valid to not want to load an autosaved file, and making
Emacs prompt would be an inconvenience, in my opinion.

Perhaps Emacs should treat auto-saved files a bit more like what it does
with files that have changed?  I.e., if you try to edit a file with an
auto-save file, it should prompt you something like "foo has auto save
data; really edit the buffer?" or something?

Would that make sense?
