I should have also mentioned that whenever you use an Icicles multi-command,
such as `icicle-buffer' (`C-x b', by default), that asks for buffer-name
completion, you can use `S-delete' to kill individual buffers on the fly. And
you can use `C-u S-delete' to kill all that match your current input, after

`S-delete' also works this way for other kinds of objects during completion. For
`icicle-find-file' (`C-x C-f', by default), for instance, you can use `S-delete'
to delete individual files or `C-u S-delete' to delete all that match your
current input.
