Hi. Thank you for your suggestions.

(BAdded in emacs-w3m CVS. But I set default limit to 5 as same as
(Bw3m-session-deleted-keep-number's default. You can change the number
(Blike this : "(setq w3m-session-automatic-keep-number 10)".
(B> 2. Save every few minutes when necessary. (Not sure if this is working.)
(BI need little more time to add this.
(B> 3. Optionally ask you whether you want to load sessions.
(BAdded. This feature is disabled by default. You can change this
(Blike the following.
(B"(setq w3m-session-load-last-sessions 'ask)"
(B Ask you whether to load the last sessions.
(B"(setq w3m-session-load-last-sessions 'auto)"
(B Automatically load the last sessions.
(B> I also have some other suggestions. These are minor:
(B> 1. The word "session" makes people think of multiple tabs, just as in
(B> a GUI browser. But w3m uses it for a single web page AND for the
(B> concept of saving sessions (w3m-sessions.el). This is confusing.
(B> Perhaps a "session" can be renamed.
(BThis issue have been discussed before, but we don't have nice resolution
(B> 2. Session labels cause dates to extend past right side of screen in
(B> the session history. Perhaps dates can be put on the left.
(BI don't think dates are so important. Who really need to see dates can
(Bmove cursor with "C-f", "C-b", and "C-e" etc.
