In V0.86 distribution, fdesign has a "Save As" option. Also
fdesign will generate a backup before it overwrites
any thing. So the chance of losing work is rather small, I would think.
Personally (and it seems many people agree with me on this), I hate
programs that bitch and whine and think they know more
than the user what he wants to do. This said, I think
putting some marker in the auto-generated file is a good idea.
