Agreed.  I think we need:
1- define a major mode for it with `q' bound to quit-window.
2- default it to read-only.

The major-mode will make it possible for people to add keybindings
and things.


PS: BTW, I've often felt that C-x C-q should turn on the undo-log when
making a buffer writeable.  It hasn't bothered me enough to actually
code it up and try it, but maybe people could try it out and see if it
leads to problems.
