Hi Max, thanks for the reply.

That is amazing. Works like a charm - just what I needed.

This should definitely be merged back to the main org distribution!

Check out my multiple-agenda-buffers branch from http://github.com/7max/org-mode

Its designed exactly for that (multiple independent agenda buffers
living together). to enable it use, M-x org-toggle-sticky-agenda

You will have to set different agenda names for different agenda views
in your org-agenda-custom-commands variable like so:

 (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      '(("a" "Agenda and NEXT (priority)"
         ((agenda ""
                  ((org-agenda-span 'day)))
          (tags-todo "/!NEXT"
                     ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Next Tasks")
                      (org-agenda-tags-todo-honor-ignore-options t)
                      (org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled t)
                      (org-agenda-todo-ignore-deadlines t)
                      (org-tags-match-list-sublevels t)
                       '(priority-down category-keep)))))
         ((org-agenda-buffer-name "*Agenda*")))
        ("t" "TODO entries"
         todo ""
         ((org-agenda-buffer-name "*Todo List*")))))

Carsten suggested that this will eventually get merged, but I think
people may be afraid, as it's a bit of a major change, converting most
agenda related variables to buffer local, and at least initially had a
several bugs, which took me a few weeks to catch and fix.

But I've been running on this branch for a month+, and quality of
my org-moding had greatly improved, since now all my agendas pop-out
immediately instead of rebuilding for several seconds.
