IMO calling it something like Abandon Changes and Close Book would help
to set expectations.

Hi John,

Such a plug-in would be easy to write. It also sounds like a sure-fire
way to get lots of hate mail when it performs exactly as designed.  
Software dutifully follows the actions of the user, whereas the user
expects the software to follow his intentions.
