Yes i am a fan of eev, if you want to build similar index in your files,
have a look at the eev page on emacswiki, and use the anything source
for eev links.

(You mean C-x C-b i think) 
If you try my source to manage buffers, i think you will find it useful:

Especially to kill buffer, you can kill without quitting anything, so
it's very fast to kill buffers.(C-u C-z)

If you put your mouse over a buffer entry, the complete path of this
(file) buffer is displayed.

The directories have a different color (see screenshot on

Marking buffer and providing actions on these buffers is not implemented

I think i also modify `anything-type-attributes', verify that before
using my buffer source.

I use anything-dabbrev-expand.el (need a ruby install on your system)
it is bind to M-/ here.(search in all buffers if it don't find in the
current buffer)

anything-complete.el is also very nice, i use always that for completions.

Also :
for a better experience on anything, think to use
anything-set-source-filter.(you have a section at the end of my file)
That avoid to launch all sources when you search something.
