If we don't know the target window in advance, then we can't use
the window-local buffer-list for `read-buffer-to-switch'.

This means that you need to store more information for the first
element of the window-local buffer-list, i.e. when popping the
stack of buffers reaches the first element, it should know what to do
after popping the last element: whether to kill the window and
which window to select instead.
