With some sensible discretion. Here, it's not just a "paint it pink please!
no, it must be purple!" discussion. There's two valid use cases -- people
who work in very different ways. It'd be easy to support both.

It's also worth noting that options to disable save confirmation in certain
cases are a longstanding UI tradition. It's more surprising to see the lack
of an option than to see one.
