That won't help in my case. To explain:
• I hit Alt
• I hit up arrow twice
• I hit Enter twice

If I miss the second action once, it will select the Quit and I will 
confirm without even reading … so, “No” would have to be the default. 
But I don't like that personally, either …
Also, mostly all files are saved in that situation, as the deletion of 
aux files happens directly after compilation when I get an error.

For a larger project, I have often about 8 files opened – and one mis-click or mis-type will close everything instead of just deleting the aux files :(
