If destructive list modifications have the effect of
destroying a list, that's not a strange effect -- on the
contrary, it's what the user wants.  But if the modifications
also cause buffers to be deleted seemingly at random -- sometimes
reachable buffers are deleted by the garbage collector,
and sometimes not -- that's a bit too weird for comfort.
