Committed in revision 108018 of the release branch.

I don't use desktop but wonder what should happen when, for example, a
buffer read by `desktop-read' exists already.  Should it move to the
front of the buffer lists or stay where it was before?

Looks odd.  Anyone who wants to clear the desktop could do this by
calling `desktop-clear'.

I'm looking for a kind soul to work on integrating window handling into
