The problem is to decide when to put in a checkpoint. Right now, we  
are forcing them only after <Enter> which is ok for usual work, but  
if you are only fixing a line here or there then those won't be  
checked in. Should we use some time-based limit? Cocoa's default is  
to place no checkpoints so it's not a help :P
