There are also buffers for the playlist, directory contents, and perhaps
a few others. Searching for calls to buffer_alloc should catch all
non-playback.c-related dynamic allocations.

Getting all buffer_alloc:s in the right order is a bit tricky (and has
been the source of some hard to find bugs), so having documentation over
it could certainly help.
