Actually I meant buffers with a dead process, not simply dead buffers.

Such a command to clean buffers already exists:
`M-x kill-matching-buffers RET Async Shell RET'

But it would be better to try not to create too much
garbage buffers in the first place than requiring
from the user to clean them up.
