I'd lean toward the first option. It's intended purpose was always to
be a convenience on top of auto-save, that simply forced a new
version. Once Sugar has full version support, and a Journal updated to
take advantage of it, restoring the Keep functionality as it exists
probably wouldn't cause problems anymore. Until then, I think the
auto-save is much friendlier than the usual prompt-on-quit, with the
possibility for lost work.
