Agreed.  I think you should lobby the Emacs maintainers to include
something like the switch-to-new-buffer command I proposed.  But it
does need to be enhanced to prompt for saving when it is killed.

You can help me with it, by filing a bug report on the *scratch*
buffer, borrowing whatever part in my article you think you agree, or
perhaps completely on your own reasons.

I will not file a bug report, because I don't think there is a bug to
fix.  I have already helped you (more than you have helped yourself)
by trying to implement the features you've requested.

As you perhaps know, i've had quite few heated arguments here. This
thread is now 120 messages going to the level of “fuck you's”. About 3
or 4 similar threads on other emacs issues has happend in the past 2
or 3 monhs.

I'm not getting paid to debate.

And I am not getting paid to hack for you.  But I continue to hack, and
you continue to debate.

The several items in emacs
modernization proposals doesn't benefit me directly in any way, and it
is not likly to be incorporated into emacs anytime soon.

This is the crux of the matter: If your proposals don't benefit you,
then absent a chorus of actual users who _would_ benefit from them, the
Emacs maintainers have no evidence that it is worth their effort to
implement them.

I myself have proposed several excellent improvements over the last 10
or 20 years that were not incorporated into Emacs.  :-)

Instead of suggesting me to do something, why don't you do something
about it? I'm not trying to be rude, and i very much appreciate your
argument here, one of the 3 or 4 in this thread that actually are
sincere and has content, in my opinion.

That is both laughable and rude.  I have done far more than you to
advance your proposal: I have implemented something.
