Scrawl is a customizable scratch buffer for writing temporary notes, and for
testing small code pieces. Changes in it will be discarded when vim is quit.
This was heavily inspired by vimscript#664. I made this because it wasn't
customizable enough.

Use ":ScrawlSplit" to open scrawl in a new split.  You can then use
":ScrawlClose" to close that split from anywhere in the tab.  If you want to
open scrawl in the current buffer, use ":ScrawlOpen".  Then when you run
":ScrawlClose" in that current tab, it will return to editing the previous file.
You can only have one scrawl buffer open in each tab.

See "doc/scrawl.txt" for options and other documentation.
