Hey Gaia,

thank you for your improvement work, the quit prompt really deserves 
some lovin' :)

I propose the following prompt:

Unsaved changes:


[Overwrite] [Save as...] [Discard & Quit] [Abort]

Overwrite should be the default button. It saves to the .blend as shown 
in the msgbox (thus overwriting what is currently on your persistent 

Save as... would be a handy addition to allow for quick save to new 
.blend (dunno how to integrate this well, I worry it would need to open 
the OS save-as modal dialog).

Discard & Quit looks verbose but it makes clear, that you will lose 
unsaved changes and Blender quit immediately after a click.

Abort simply cancels the dialog and no action is taken.

I believe it's possible to create msgboxes with arbitrary buttons with 
Windows API, it's more complicated than the msgboxes with a default set 
of buttons. Not sure about other OS?
