The suggested tactic is to integrate the PMC Post Savior plugin into core. That part should be pretty straightforward.
I think 3 valuable enhancements that are on the plugin's roadmap, but not yet complete would be:
- Alert properly on failed requests and lost connectivity. If my internet connection has gone down and I'm still working, I should be alerted that I'm "Working offline" and my changes aren't being automatically saved. I don't think this should be a blocking UI, but it should be obvious.
- Block publish/save until login has been verified. Polling duration can be decreased (or maybe even done away with entirely) if we block the Publish/Save/etc actions until we've verified the user's cookie.
- Pre-emptive notification. When approaching the user's login cookie expiration time, say 1 hour before, display a message and allow the user to extend their login. For example, how banking sites notify you when you've been inactive too long and they're about to log you out.
