I don't know that I've ever interactively used bury-buffer.

For bindings to `z' with modifiers I personally prefer:

        (global-set-key "\e\C-z" 'suspend-emacs)

        (global-set-key "\C-xz" 'enlarge-window)
        (global-set-key "\C-x\C-z" 'shrink-window)

        (global-set-key "\ez" 'scroll-one-line-down)
        (global-set-key "\C-z" 'scroll-one-line-up)

        (defun scroll-one-line-up (&optional arg)
          "Scroll the selected window up (forward in the text) one line (or N 
          (interactive "p")
          (scroll-up (or arg 1)))

        (defun scroll-one-line-down (&optional arg)
          "Scroll the selected window down (backward in the text) one line (or 
          (interactive "p")
          (scroll-down (or arg 1)))
