Done (branch "buffer-auto-renumber" merged to master).

New options:
- weechat.look.buffer_auto_renumber (must be set to off to disable auto renumber)
- weechat.look.buffer_position (position for a new buffer: end / first_gap).

New bar item: "buffer_last_number" (now bar item "buffer_count" displays the number of opened buffers, each merged buffer counts 1).

0) addressing channels by numbers which never change
1) restoring layout as best as it's possible
2) arranging windows by topic (i.e. 1-20 are tech channels, 31-50 are chat channels) with ability to add new buffers to “topics” without disrupting anything
3) easily accessible “temporary” windows (pms/scripts/etc) in a “gap” somewhere under buffer #11.

Vim's buffers are like this. Irssi's buffers can be made like this (see http://pthree.org/2008/03/04/static-windows-in-irssi/).
