switch-to-buffer: for interactive use only

Was it really necessary to mark switch-to-buffer "for interactive use
only"? It's a pretty basic command that was used in ~ 800 places in the
Emacs 23.3 sources. The Emacs 23.3 Lisp manual also says "The
@code{switch-to-buffer} function is often used interactively... It is
also used frequently in programs". Isn't there a better way to handle
this than replacing hundreds of calls with `pop-to-buffer-same-window'?
