Sure, but I think this is an improvement over what we have. Currently,
if the changes file is unwritable, then the user *can't* immediately
quit Squeak. By the time they get a chance to quit, the system will
then ask if they are really sure about it. It's as if Squeak is
*trying* to get them to mess up.

A reasonable alternative. This will be a real nuisance if you really
have lost your changes file, but how often does that happen? Wanna code
it up? :)
