The CVS version of Emacs has next-buffer and prev-buffer commands,
maybe you can steal those?  (They are bound to C-x <left> and C-x
<right> by default -- a very cool binding IMHO.)

There is a post in gnu.emacs.sources which provides these tabs for
Emacs.  They are built in for XEmacs.

I think that ibuffer.el provides MRU order, which is even better I
think.
