Yeah, I can understand that the brief summary line by itself isn't
very telling. I'll be more verbose from now on, starting with commit
[f35a5dce0b]. :)

I made the change because a user missed Viper's `ex-quit'. But, as you
rightly point out, neither `ex-quit' nor `save-buffers-kill-emacs'
emulate :quit completely, making `vimpulse-want-quit-like-Vim'
something of a misnomer. The better solution would be to write a
quit function that implemented both parts of Vim's :quit.
