I take back that last part. Toggling read-only makes `q' self-insert again. I do
that in *Help*, for instance.

So this comes down to a choice, I think:

1. View-mode by default, so `q' quits, and you need to do `C-x C-q' to make it

2. Writable by default, and you need to do `C-x 0' (or `C-x k') to get rid of

And the same or similar considerations probably apply to *Pp Eval Output*.

I still vote for #2, but I don't feel strongly about it.
