OK, I think i'm finally done with my uniquify hacking and there's
two things still left for me to do:
- Revert the patch that made Gnus' "(un)sent" buffers unmanaged. The new
code should handle those buffers correctly: either they'll be unmanaged
anyway (if Gnus never calls either `create-file-buffer' on them or
`rename-buffer' with a non-nil `unique' argument) or they'll be managed
but uniquify will still preserve their name. I.e. if the buffer-file-name
is ~/foo/drafts/7 and the buffer-name was "*unsent bar*", uniquify
will at worst use a buffer-name of the form "*unsent bar*|foo/drafts"
- Change the default of uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p to t (we could
also change its name, but I don't care enough to do it myself).
The docstring of uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p used to say that it's
a dangerous feature because it can change buffer names behind packages'
backs and that if packages remember their buffers by name (rather
than directly by buffer) there can be trouble.
I removed that text because the text applies to the whole of uniquify
rather than just to uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p. OTOH, it is true
that uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p made the problem slightly worse because
it caused all buffer-names to be reconsidered after a kill-buffer,
including buffers which had never been uniquified before. This has
now been fixed, so I think we can safely change the default.
