It sounds like a recipe for accidentally losing > the source code when careless. I think it's more complicated than that: source code loss is also the motivation for doing something like this. If you are editing the code in the *Org Edit Src* buffer, and get distracted, you may return to the org buffer and mistakenly decide that it contains the latest content. I've done that two or three times in the last couple of days, resulting in lost work. That mistake cannot be made so easily when there is only ever one current copy of the code. If you close emacs without C-c ', or your laptop power runs out, then I agree that is bad, but I thought perhaps there might be a good solution along these lines. Maybe an alternative would be to maintain a work-in-progress message along with the out-of-date code?
