And, if you bind bs-show to C-x b or C-x C-b, that's *exactly* what you
can do: C-x b (or whatever), click or select with arrows, RET, and
you're on the desired buffer. In fact, bs-show provides also bs-next and
bs-prev to ease switching buffers withouth showing the list, and ways to
configure which buffers are displayed, and to switch between
configurations (so showing only "relevant" buffers, or all buffers, is

Since I loaded bs.el in my .emacs years ago, I haven't used *any* other
