Yeah, the whole buffers-menu situation is kind of screwed up in emacs;
too many separate implementations of the same thing not sharing any
behavior.

It's been one of those things I've wanted to clean up, but of course,
`so little tyme'...

msb-mode seems to do what the original poster wanted though.

Probably the various modes ought to be merged to some degree.  For
instance, I added some control variables like `buffers-menu-show-status'
to the normal buffers-menu code which I'd like msb-mode to pay attention
to as well.  In fact, I think it would be cleaner to have the
distinction of `grouped by type' etc. an orthogonal attribute of the
normal buffers-menu, rather than a separate mode (the current
implementation is presumably because msb-mode was originall distributed
separately from emacs).
