The client-side mechanics of an auto-save feature are easy to envision
and a minor project to implement. Where you begin to run into big
trouble is in messing with the database. Where are you going to safe
the drafts? wp_posts? What about the wasted autoincremented ID's? You
know that'll be a sore spot. How are you going to display and manage

It's fine to hypothesize about the necessary changes to the edit forms
but please realize that therein lies only one tenth of the problem.

Is anyone so far involved in this discussion willing to do a working mockup?
