Agree with all of them! Except for initial-scratch-message I had them
all set similarly (and uniquify-buffer-name-style to
post-forward-angle-brackets, but just post-forward looks nicer).

Something to add would maybe be backup file related - I think those
.#...# files left behind everywhere by default by emacs are more
annoying than they are worth. I have this:

(setq backup-inhibited t)

but maybe just putting them into a dedicated directory like this is
sufficient for most people:

(backup-directory-alist (quote ((".*" . "~/.emacs.d/backup"))))
