FWIW, since nobody replied within 10 minutes, that's what I'm using now:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq split-width-threshold 152
      split-height-threshold 60)

(defun th/split-window-sensibly (&optional window)
  "Split WINDOW in a way suitable for `display-buffer'.
Like `split-window-sensibly' but first try horizontal splits,
then vertical splits, and also try not to split dedicated
windows."
  (let ((window (or (and window (not (window-dedicated-p window)))
                    (selected-window))))
    (or (and (window-splittable-p window t)
             ;; Split window horizontally.
             (with-selected-window window
               (split-window-right)))
        (and (window-splittable-p window)
             ;; Split window vertically.
             (with-selected-window window
               (split-window-below)))
        (and (eq window (frame-root-window (window-frame window)))
             (not (window-minibuffer-p window))
             ;; If WINDOW is the only window on its frame and is not the
             ;; minibuffer window, try to split it vertically disregarding
             ;; the value of `split-height-threshold'.
             (let ((split-height-threshold 0))
               (when (window-splittable-p window)
                 (with-selected-window window
                   (split-window-below))))))))

(setq split-window-preferred-function #'th/split-window-sensibly)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

That works fine so far.  I also modified it so that it is less likely to
split dedicated windows.

Bye,
