*ZMACS-BUFFER-LIST* and *ZMACS-BUFFER-HISTORY* are almost redundant,
. . . thus making it almost seem like there is only
one variable rather than two.
Agre's bug report is that c-m-L with an argument doesn't always do what you
would expect from the List Buffers listing, because buffers created by
ZWEI:LOAD-FILE-INTO-ZMACS don't work.
It might be better to get rid of *ZMACS-BUFFER-HISTORY* and just keep
*ZMACS-BUFFER-LIST* sorted in order of recency of selection. However this would
cause c-- c-m-L to tend to bring back an "obsolete" dired or mail buffer.
There could be a flag in a buffer which makes it invisible to ROTATE-BUFFER-HISTORY.
Hear hear. There could also be a ZWEI:LOAD-FILE-INTO-ZMACS argument
(defaulting to whatever) giving the initial setting of this flag.
