No. I don't. I want to go back to the backup I made just before attempting a risky major change. And I don't let minor changes pile up unsaved. Change... verify success... save. If it's important, you learn not rely on features of a program to save your ass. You just don't leave it up to chance. Period.

Now having said that. If this "save my F'd-up code" feature can be accomplished without interfering with my workflow (i.e. not telling me my code was F'd-up and saving it anyway), then go for it. But I consider it a "feature" that I can't save F'd-up code. Anything that allows me even the opportunity to unwittingly save invalid code, I'd consider quite dangerous.
