All my grades were in a gnumeric file, which file, partly due to

This reminds me some idea. Currently all file savers in Gnumeric 
just overwrite the file while saving. If we can't save for some reason (lost
connection to file server, Gnumeric/OS crash, etc.), we loose the data (the
old file is overwritten and the new one is unusable). How about saving the
file to <tmp_prefix>-<file_name> and then (if everything is ok) renaming it?
I volunteer to implement this for most savers.
