I meant we shouldn't distinguish between a `switch-to-buffer' function
and a `pop-to-buffer-same-window' function since both would end up doing
essentially the same thing `switch-to-buffer' always did.  Or is the
main motivation that `pop-to-buffer-same-window' has a built-in fallback
for strongly dedicated windows?

Then tell my what you expect a function like `pop-to-buffer-same-window'
do differently from `switch-to-buffer'.  In any case we have to give it
a different name since the `pop-to-buffer' family functions never reuse
dedicated windows.
