The list wasn't very forthcoming, but #emacs was more forthcoming, so I
thought I'd share what I learned here where web-searches might find it.

First, to stop emacs from opening a buffer-list on startup, just set
this variable
to t in .emacs

Second, although I haven't managed to stop the window from being split,
it's possible to delete the extra window by adding this to .emacs:
        (add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook 'delete-other-windows)

Another little gem is how to get the buffer-list (C-x C-b) and other
special buffers to appear in the current-window, rather than the
other-window. This is achieved by adding this to .emacs
        (nconc same-window-buffer-names '("*Buffer List*" "*Help*"))
