I think this is a good idea. I used emacs for years before I found any use
whatever for a *scratch* buffer. From the standpoint of evaluating scraps
of elisp, it's handy, but no more so than an "untitled" buffer (e.g. it's
not in emacs-lisp-mode by default). The main benefit of Aquamacs' current
implementation is the persistent scratch buffer, but that's only sometimes
useful, and not much effort is required to save/load a document when
persistence is desired. When one doesn't want, or doesn't expect, a
*scratch* buffer, it can be off-putting, too. As long as it is optional, it
will still be available for those who desire it.
