Thank you. That was the missing bit.

Something like this is it:

(loop for buffer in (buffer-list)
      until (if (vc-backend (buffer-file-name buffer))
                (buffer-modified-p buffer))
      finally return (if (and (buffer-modified-p buffer)
                              (vc-backend (buffer-file-name buffer)))
                         1
                       0))

Yes. This doesn't apply in my case, because I'm 'quering' emacs from
within a script with the help of emacsclient -e and want just a yes / no
answer (hence the 'un-lispish' return values). I just want to know, if
this is the case (and ask for confirmation, to give me a chance to look
at the thing, instead of just saving).
