If you eventually want to replace `switch-to-buffer' by `pop-to-buffer'
it becomes important to distinguish calls to show a specific buffer from
calls for showing unspecified, temporary buffers.  Otherwise, you can't
tell apart the explicit placing of buffers in windows from merely
accidental ones that happened just because some window had the right
size at the right moment.

I'll take your word for that.
