Other groupings might be good too. E.g. the comint process buffer for a
language grouped with the code files; all magit buffers in a magit tree;
all gnus buffers (summary, group, article) in a gnus tree. It seems that
the best thing might be to have a flexible way of specifying the tree
structure. E.g some way to specify "projects" for which all buffers
should be grouped together. Not sure how to implement that though.

I've also been wondering about adding recentf files (buffers you might
want, in addition to buffers you have). Then it might make sense to
present them in a hierarchy based on the filesystem location. That's
also true when grouping buffers by their directory (B def RET).

So making it work with > 2 levels of hierarchy is definitely something
worth thinking about, especially if someone has a good idea how to
specify the desired tree structure a priori.

A year or two ago someone posted code to preserve folding state of an
org buffer using an auxiliary file. Don't think it's in contrib. But I
might try to dig that out also. Anyone know where it is?

Fixed, thanks!
