autosave -- check if there is a diff before autosaving...

currently, autosave will create a revision for existing posts even if nothing has changed in the post's contents. it tends to clutter the database with needless revisions. it should check if there is any diff at all before autosaving.

I'd like to see this one fixed in WP 2.8, and am posting a bounty on this bug. $25 will go to whoever submits the patch who gets included in WP 2.8. Email sales at semiologic dot com to collect the bounty.
