That seems interesting. I toyed with the idea in my mind some time ago,
but couldn't figure out something neat enough to be really
usable. Ideally, you'd have separate buffer groups, and C-x b with
ido/iswitchb/whatever would only display the current group. There'd be a
system to switch activity, with memorised window configurations, and
notifications (say, ERC or gnus has received new messages, or a
compilation has finished) would be unified (so you could have one
keybinding to "switch to the activity requiring attention"). However,
that all seems a bit hackish, and I wonder if that's not twisting emacs
around too much.

Your code looks cool, but I'm thinking of something a little more static
- ie "c-mode or emacs-lisp-mode files under ~/emacs go to activity
emacs-hack", etc.
