[wp-hackers] Autosave API for custom post types?

Hi wp-hackers,

I have a plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-photo-album/) with a 
custom post type and as update I've added successfully support for 
revisions. But when I restore an autosave, the metadata (that is saved 
with the revisions) is empty. After digging into the code, I found out 
that autosave only checks the title and the content (which in my plugin 
doesn't exists on the edit page) for differences and saves only them.

So I was wondering if there is (or will be in the near future) a 
autosave API that allows to save also "custom data". And, if that is not 
the case, does anyone know a workaround to save my metadata with 

Best regards,
