Yes. There is time-stamp.el, which ships with Emacs 21

| Commentary:
| A template in a file can be updated with a new time stamp when
| you save the file.  For example:
|     static char *ts = "sdmain.c Time-stamp: <1996-08-13 10:20:51 gildea>";
| See the top of `time-stamp.el' for another example.
| To use time-stamping, add this line to your .emacs file:
|     (add-hook 'write-file-hooks 'time-stamp)
| Now any time-stamp templates in your files will be updated automatically.
| See the documentation for the functions `time-stamp'
| and `time-stamp-toggle-active' for details.

Thomas Burdick once posted a nice macro to change `yes-or-no-p' to
`y-or-n-p' function-wise:

(require 'cl)

(defmacro make-shorter-response (&rest names)
     ,@(mapcar (lambda (name)
                 `(defadvice ,name (around shorter-response)
                    (flet ((yes-or-no-p (prompt) (y-or-n-p prompt)))
     ,@(mapcar (lambda (name) `(ad-activate (quote ,name)))

Then you can simply do:

(make-shorter-response kill-buffer)
