# How could I preserve netrw :Lexplore in Vim sessions?

I use netrw :Lexplore as my file browser and I also use vim sessions. However, whenever I open a session file, :Lexplore is closed and I have to re-open.

Is there a way to keep netrw :Lexplore open on session save / restore?

As a partial solution: before saving the session, use :set bl when in the netrw window, thus making it a listed buffer. Your sessionoptions should also have buffers as one of its entries. Then, save a session (ie. :mksession somefilename). Its only a partial solution because the restored window, although the window exists, is filled properly, and netrw works with it, its not named.
