reopen 431

Hi Stefan!

Sorry for the lag, real life (and work) comes first.

I re-added the people involved in this bug.  However, please Cc: me, I'm
not subscribed to the list nor to the bug.

This is *now* the desired default behavior, but from my POV this is a
*regression*: on Debian emacs22_22.2+2.2 still has the old behavior and
I've some functions which rely on that.

Arbitrarily breaking stuff is not acceptable IMO and this is the reason
why I reopened this bug.

It could be strange, but I really like the new default behavior: I tend
to have my Emacs buffer at a width < 72, so most of the time I'd like to
split horizontally.

However, what I'd prefer instead is something configurable every time I
want to split a window: there's a default behavior (let it be managed by
`split-width-threshold' or `split-height-threshold', I don't care), but
e.g. if I call C-u C-x 4 f the default behavior is reversed.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
