There are buffers in emacs which do contain, er, junk, but their names
all start with a space.  Go to the *scratch* buffer, and execute
(buffer-list) with C-u C-x C-e.  Note the difference between

#<buffer cc-defs.el>             and
#<buffer  *Echo Area 0*>

It might be an idea to reprogram these commands so that internal buffers
are normally filtered out from the buffer list, but with a C-u prefix,
they would be treated as normal buffers.
