vim-buffest : Edit registers and the quickfix/location list as buffers

script type
Allows you to open a representation of registers and the quickfix/location lists in buffers opened in a new split/tab.

Automatically adds autocommands to these buffers so you can read/write with commands like `:w`, `:e!`, `ZZ`, etc.

For editing registers, it saves time pasting/yanking/cleaning up when editing macros or yanked content.
It can also allow you to easily preview the contents of a register.
For lists, it adds powerful filtering and creation functionality through built-in vim commands.

Adds the intuitive bindings `c@{register}` to open a register, `c,q` to open the quickfix list, and `c,l` to open the location list.
Everything is bindable and re-bindable.

This command is inspired by emacs and, in my opinion, adds a very simple but powerful feature missing in vim.
