Normally after emacs is crashed, you know you need to use M-x
recover-session, but it could happen that you go to lunch after
crash, you come back, you start emacs again, you forget to do
recover-session and open and then also miss the
"foo.txt has auto save data..." message.

How do you deal with this problem?

Go to lunch before the crash!
Think faster but type slower!
Or, (setq message-log-max t),
+ `C-h e' every now and then.


In buffers which have auto-save data I'd like to see an orange
background. In addition, I'd like to hear a beep when I try to type
into that buffer with the standard message/prompt in the minibuffer that
there's auto-save data... should I pull it in or discard it.

Attached is code that does that, plus undoes all those effects w...

you do recover the file.
