thank you both 'rgb' and Johan for answering.

I have tried advising both switch-to-buffer-other-window, and
diplay-buffer. That works for e.g. M-x manual-entry, i.e. the man page
is displayed in a vertical window, but unfortunately *not* for
e.g. C-h x or tab completion.

Yes, it seems like the call to Fsplit_window() in Fdisplay_buffer()
has a hard-coded nil value, and I certainly agree that there should
be room for user-customization there. However, the fact that advising
(display-buffer) does not do the trick, seems to indicate that other
functions are involved for some of these cases, e.g. for the C-h
family of functions.

Anyway, I have a partial solution.
