;; This mode allows multiple buffers to be 'locked' so that scrolling
;; up or down lines in any buffer causes all the buffers to mirror
;; the scrolling. It hooks into the post-command-hook to check for
;; potential scrolling commands and if we're locked, mirrors them in all
;; windows. This allows us to grab line-at-a-time scrolling as well as
;; screen-at-a-time scrolling, and doesn't remap any of the keyboard
;; commands to do it.
;; You can enable and disable this mode with the 'scroll-all-mode' command.
