Hi all,

I might be poking into a hornets' nest, but I was wondering whether 
configurably linking saving the notebook to the cell execution could 
appease all those who complain about autosave. My idea is that one could 
simply have a flag in the profile, and if that flag is set, then  
that.save_notebook() could be executed at the end of 
execute_selected_cell(). This solution should be safe in the sense that 
as long as the function save_notebook works, there should be absolutely 
no problems with using it in execute_selected_cell, and we wouldn't have 
to tamper with the javascript base.

In any case, if you think this could be a viable option, I could try to 
implement it.
