      Just being a lurker here, I would vote for this being in all GUIs
      (not that we get votes here). Having the actual save/discard vs. yes/
      no makes it much simpler to look at a message box and know which
      button to press (probably why the "File Changed" dialog in Vim is a
      bit easier to decide what to do than the "Save Changes" dialog IMO).

      FWIW, the OS X guidelines also recommend this as well, (though they
      seem to prefer "Don't Save", Discard is better than "No").

      Breaking translations is unfortunate though, but it is a one-time
      cost (hopefully)... Vim 7.1-type thing?
