And you have to remember to duplicate first before changing anything. If 
you forget and make changes, you need to go into the Star Wars movie 
interface to retrieve your original version.

I intensely hope that RR never implements this "feature." I am willing 
to bet that virtually all programmers do not want every bit of buggy 
code, tinkering, and temporary experiments auto saved. Apple should give 
us a choice.

I did a whole lot of searching on this because I really wanted to 
disable auto-save. Everything I read says there is no way to disable it, 
Apple is firmly enforcing the new way of working, destroying 30 years of 
entrenched work flow. You can turn off auto-opening documents and 
auto-opening apps on login, but auto-save is untouchable.

The Apple forums are full of complaints about it.
