well, looks interesting, but what i do not understand what that does: it
looks like it genberate names in a sub-directory ~/.emacs.d/auto-save-list
but my auto-saving files appear in the directory of the original file with a
# at the beginning and end.

or is there a difference between the _auto-save_ features and the
_auto-saving_ features?

cheers, leo
