Sticky: A property applied to buffers. "Sticky" buffers are bound to an
exclusive window. "Non-sticky" buffers are free to move around to multiple
windows. "Non-sticky" is the current and would be default behavior of all
buffers. Also, a sticky buffer that is invisible will always show up in the
same window. A single window can have multiple buffers "stuck" to it, but it
is important to note that a buffer can only be "stuck" to zero or one window.

In addition, all buffer navigation (most importantly ctrl+a) must be modified
to take this into consideration. So when a sticky buffer is switched to, it is
made visible in the proper window along with the proper input bar being
utilized. Of course, the input bar will be less of an issue if one input bar
is used for all buffers.

This feature is taken from irssi. Here is a link to an article that explains
the behavior quite well. I'm not suggesting weechat be more like irssi but
being an irssi user for awhile, I can attest to this feature being quite
wonderful in terms of displaying lots of information at once.
