      help, quickfix and preview are handled now. At the bottom of ":h
      windows" there are furthermore directory, scratch and unlisted. I'm not
      quite sure how to handle them. I think 'unlisted' doesn't have to be
      handled. I have heard about 'scratch' but I can't remember for what to
      use it. For 'directory' I get buftype=nofile when doing ":new .",
      "nowrite" in the documentation doesn't seem to be completely correct.

      Is it sufficient to simply treat each buftype!="" as special? But then
      'buftype' only exists for +quickfix, but I guess netrw.vim also works
      without this feature.

      The command window is restricted in possible commands anyway. And you
      cannot escape.
