Hey Benno,

Like the idea, and ^O^Q definitely makes sense as the proper keystrokes.

I had trouble getting the patch to apply to 2.5.0 but I assume it works 
against trunk. 

I really think we need a do_yesno_prompt for "are you sure you want to
lose all changes" before we bail on the editor, especially 
if the current buffer is modified.
