What I'm really looking for is a way to stop emacs saving files as
root, or else I'm going to have to run chown every time I create a
file, or create the file using touch and then open it in emacs.

Neither of these is an optimal solution. Surely there must be some
sort of setting that tells emacs who to save files as?

Iain
