Sometimes, Xah, your spellings and phrasings, to say nothing of your
wierd variable length quotes with dangling bits, make your message all
but indecipherable.

Eli has one up on you there.  English isn't his native language either,
yet he manages to convey his ideas with style and panache.

OK, back to the main point.  It seems that `switch-to-buffer' (C-x b)
does pretty much what you want.  Except you seem upset that when you do
M-x kill-buffer, Emacs kills the buffer.  I'd be unhappy if it didn't.

Actually, you'd be better typing C-x k.  All you want, I think, is that
Emacs should give you a warning when you're about to kill such a buffer.
Why don't you implement this and post it up?  It's not rocket science,
and you do have a basic grasp of Emacs Lisp.  You seem to expect that
somebody else should do the work of implementing your ideas - that's
just not the way things work.  Implement it now - it should take more
than an hour or two to modify C-x b - then we can try it out to see how
good it actually is.

Xah, don't try to fuck - you're not very good at it.  Write some Elisp
