I guess the implementation would be that the buffer would be marked as
changed after a find file on a file that can't be found. In that case
the only thing, objection, that pops to my mind is that a later
save-some-buffers would semi silently create the file.
But I guess that is what the proposal is all about. If you create a
buffer using find-file you also really want to create the file. Go for
If I were to mistype a directory name within the path to the file, what
would the action be? Now, I am asked if I wish to create the directory.
If I answer "no," then I get a buffer with that filename. It is not
modified, so I can delete the buffer without answering another question.
I would want similar action in a revised C-x-C-f.
