Suppose there were a setting "auto-save-settings" which defaults to
on. But if you set it off, then the "save settings" button appears (or
is made clickable. If the auto-save-settings choice is saved, then
people who only want to have them saved when they want it get that,
people who keep forgetting to save settings simply leave it defaulted
on and they are protecte from forgetting.
