;;; Commentary:

;; Winner mode is a global minor mode that when turned on records
;; changes in window configuration.  This way the changes can be
;; "undone" using the function `winner-undo'.  By default this one is
;; bound to the key sequence ctrl-x left.  If you change your mind
;; (while undoing), you can press ctrl-x right (calling
;; `winner-redo').  Unlike the normal undo, you may have to skip
;; through several identical window configurations in order to find
;; the one you want.  This is a bug due to some techical limitations
;; in Emacs and can maybe be fixed in the future.
;; In addition to this I have added `winner-switch' which is a program
;; that switches to other buffers without disturbing Winner mode.  If
;; you bind this command to a key sequence, you may step through all
;; your buffers (except the ones mentioned in `winner-skip-buffers' or
;; matched by `winner-skip-regexps').  With a numeric prefix argument
;; skip several buffers at a time.
