;;; Commentary:
;; This code sets a buffer-local variable to t if toggle-emacs-lock is run,
;; then if the user attempts to exit emacs, the locked buffer name will be
;; displayed and the exit aborted. This is just a way of protecting
;; yourself from yourself. For example, if you have a shell running a big
;; program and exiting emacs would abort that program, you may want to lock
;; that buffer, then if you forget about it after a while, you won't
;; accidently exit emacs. To unlock the buffer, just goto the buffer and
;; run toggle-emacs-lock again.
