      Instead of the buffer's number, one can also use a _fragment_
      of the buffer's name! ("Fragment" meaning _any_ substring of
      the buffer's name.) This always works when the fragment is
      unique meaning it is the fragment of one and only one buffer
      name. _Sometimes_, when the fragment is not unique, hitting
      tab results in cycling through all buffers whose name contains
      that fragment. I say "sometimes" because there are times when
      hitting tab doesn't present a choice of buffers. (I have not
      yet taken time to figure out under what conditions tab works
      and doesn't work to provide a choice of buffers.)
