Yes, good idea, I'll rewrite in v2.

I hadn't encountered any problems in practice. I tested with a maximum
of 20 or so show buffers at a time and didn't notice any slowness, but I
wasn't paying close attention because updates were happening in the
background (only a few buffers were actually shown in windows).

If this is a problem, then we can try to make it faster, sure.
