not good enough.  I want to know what I am in for before I press the
key, that's only fair and square.  What if all the C-s features were
only learnable once one was already searching.  [p.s. not talking
about reading Info here, just C-h k]

i mean the kind that C-x s would ask about, with files attached.
Oh, and then there's some gnus draft buffers too...

P> (defun switch-to-next-unsaved-buffer ()

a quick test of your function seems that it does it all... hope to see
it in emacs soon, along with an official keybinding.  Pretty darn
handy actually.

uh oh, want to exclude modified *scratch* type buffers... and some
users would want *shell* to be included which seems not to now...
ok, this all should have customization instructions...
better yet, a handy 'only-if-file-associated 'processes[-too]
.... etc. predicates list...
