Hmm. Well, in that case, my concern has not been fully addressed after
all, since I often modify and save the file before deciding to abort. I
should have realised that my earlier understanding was not possible.

In that event I guess I am stuck with killing my job as before. The
concensus seems to be that such a change as I suggested would not be
sufficiently useful...
