As mentioned in some past thread, `same-frame' and `same-window'
parameters were misdesigned (by yours truly).  It should probably be
a single parameter with values `same-frame' or `same-window' instead.
Then we'd want to add the values `near-minibuffer' or `contiguous' for
the dired-pop-to-buffer behavior.  For the split-orientation, I'm not
sure if that same parameter should be used, or if a new one should be
used instead.

I don't see much difficulty here.

I don't follow.
