[I posted this in response to a similar question a few months ago, but
I guess I'll repeat it here, since no one else has volunteered it yet.]

Yes, someone here has put together such a listing, which he is making
commercially available.  It's called Anderson's Timesaving Comparative
Guide, Restriction Enzyme Edition; by Roger Anderson.  It is very
comprehensive (includes all known commercial sources, with pricing
info), & is updated 2X/yr.  I'm not sure if it contains buffer info,
tho.  Contact:

DISCLAIMER: Yes, I do know Roger Anderson (not very well, but it's a
small department), and yes, I did originally hear about this product
from him at the weekly Beer^H^H^H^HSocial Hour.  However,

a) I do not stand to gain financially (or otherwise) by this posting, &

b) I am posting purely on my own initiative -- I was not approached by
Roger, nor anyone acting as his agent, blah blah blah.  I just think
that this is a great product, directly relevant to the posted
question, & the community should know about it.  That having been
said, I think I am well within the official Bionet commercial posting
