Actually, that's not quite the way it works. It just stats the file
before opening the editor, and again after the editor is closed, and if
there's no change in the size or the mtime, it assumes you haven't
changed it. If you edit it, then make more changes, then exit without
saving, the version you saved will be used. There's really no way to
tell that you had saved then made more changes and not saved them (not
that would work with all editors anyway).
