The only problem with that is that the filename for such a
blank buffer won't be unique, which will cause severe
problems if nano dies unexpectedly and tries to save all
unsaved buffers (i. e. it'll only write the first one as and skip all the others).  That's the whole
reason for only allowing the opening of files.  If you
need multiple blank buffers, the context-sensitive help
for the Insert menu explains how to get them.
