Subject: R-beta: auto save

I'm just about to put an autosave feature into R as per
requests by Peter and Kurt.
My current thinking is that it should be an option so that it
is setable (in the profile if you want). One simply specifies the
number of commands that are executed between calls to save.
It won't be incremental; I'll just dump the output of ls().
I think that the file name should not be .RData but rather something
like .RAutoSave (so it's there if you need it but you don't get it
on startup unless you ask for it).
