These days dabbrev-expand looks in other buffers for expansion
choices, nice.  May I suggest that it also look in the list of current
buffers/filenames by default, as one often needs to refer to such
names in other files.  E.g., there I am editing
extermelylongfilename.txt and I wish to mention the name
extermelylongfilename.txt in the text.  Well, no matter if I have
written the file or not, dabbrev-expand though it knows many things
these days, doesn't know the name of even the very file name I'm
editing.  Why, that's damn near unupholsterable! :-) [implementation:
check the current internal list, not just say add a stale 'Buffer
List' buffer's contents to the list of buffer friends.]
