I have found that answering No is pretty useless and just hit C-g
and start all over again. I'm wondering if a No answer should have
the same effect as C-g. Does anyone know what was intended by allowing
No to create a buffer without a directory? If you try to save the
buffer, it just complains that the directory does not exist anyways.
