Hi Nick,

Good idea, I have one question below.

Does this skip any documents that the user might reasonably expect to autosave?

Obviously it skips new as yet unsaved files, but IMHO thats ok, is
there anything else?

If so we might want to indicate the fact that this file isn't being
autosaved to warn that there is a risk of data loss. (maybe with new
files too?)
