How about putting that functionality into gemhead:

[gemhead 1] (render pri 1, onscreen)
[gemhead 1 mybuffer] (pri 1, render to buffer named mybuffer)

Could be easy to test debugging by removing the one argument (or setting
the message)

Actually this (ui wise) would work for multiple windows too,

[gemhead 1 mywindow] Then its transparent to the user if its a named
window [gemwin 30 mywindow] or a named buffer....

Just thinking aloud.
