      As an example: I have debugging output in a left hand window (Decho.vim
      produces this sort of output);
      when I hit <f9> on a function name, a vertically split window shows up
      on the right and tags to the
      named function. However, if that window already exists, I just want to
      re-use it, not split and create another
      one. To do that correctly, I need that window, when it is actually
      closed, to perform some cleanup (ie. make a change
      in a script variable). I want to allow other vertical windows, so there
      isn't necessarily a fixed number of vertically
      split panes. Actually, the script also allows <s-f9> to create a left
      hand source window: [leftsource|debugging|rightsource].

      The leftsource and right source windows may well be open to the same
      source file. Consequently the various buffer
      closing events aren't adequate. BufWinLeave almost does the trick, but
      there's that "not when a buffer is still visible
      in another window" caveat associated with it. That's what I've been
      using, but it really isn't adequate.

      A WinResized might easily occur when that window wasn't closed, too.
