Thank you again.

I was looking for \doifbufferelse and \resetbuffers as analogous to the 
setups commands. While such consistency is nice, it is rare to find.

While I appreciate learning about these from the list, I must echo 
recent comments about the state of documentation. If these are user 
commands, as these appear to be, one should be able to find them in at 
least the advanced documents.
