Thanks for your reply. Alt+1,2, etc is already used by an XFCE terminal
emulator which I'm using (The windows key could do it - I'm not sure how
i'd bind it, though)

Does it mean that nobody alse has problems with it? I mean either I'm
misusing something unnecesarily ending up with 10-20 buffers (gnus,
slime, notes) or it's normal, however, not really annoying for most
emacs users:)

What say you?:)
