BTW, what do you think about adding to window.el something like:

  (defun quit-window-kill-buffer ()
    "Quit WINDOW and kill its buffer."
    (quit-window t))

The problem is that for some modes it's desirable to kill buffers as well
when quitting.  Then it would be easier to put in .emacs:

  (define-key dired-mode-map "q" 'quit-window-kill-buffer)

Or even better to add a new customizable variable with a list of modes
where `q' kills the buffer, e.g. `quit-window-kill-buffer-modes'
that could be customized to add modes like `dired-mode'.
