Ok Ok, it was pretty stupid of me to delete a buffer I really wanted.
Actually, it was just a typo, I was in the buffer editor and typed a "D"
instead of an "S".
Hmm, I can undelete files, is there some way to undelete a buffer?
Anyway, the buffer was gone, and I wanted it back.
Here's what I did. It seems to work. I must say, while dynamic windows
were not crucial to this, it sure made it easy to crawl through the area
when I could click describe on a structure.
Good hack; I've written many similar ones.
Note that it is not guaranteed to work; the garbage collector may have
reclaimed the buffer, in which case MAP-OVER-OBJECTS wouldn't be able to
