Oh! I misunderstood -- I expected it to return the most recently used
window other than the selected one... Well, as it is now it's not very
useful at all, indeed. :-|

I don't see how that would help, as the hook is not run when a window is
selected.

So I'm still stuck with the advice... I guess I could at least use your
`window-use-time' to manually sort the windows and select the one with
the next-to-highest value.
