Almost all the messages displayed in the echo area are also recorded
in the @file{*Messages*} buffer so that the user can refer back to
them. This includes all the messages that are output with
@code{message}. This buffer is read-only and has the major-mode
@code{messages-buffer-mode}. The best way to retrieve that buffer is
the function @code{messages-buffer}.
@defun messages-buffer
Return the @file{*Messages*} buffer.
If it does not exist, create and it switch it to @code{messages-buffer-mode}.

and read-only. Code that might create the *Messages* buffer should
call the function `messages-buffer' to do so and set the mode.
