There are two ways to call bury-buffer, which correspond to two fairly
different behaviors.  One is with a non-nil argument, where it only
touches the order in the buffer-list.  This one is uncontroversial and
doesn't matter much to me.

The other is when the argument is nil, in which case it is
*specifically* meant to make the buffer disappear (additionally to
changing the buffer-list order).  This case is very much about display,
not just secondarily so.

Then we could add an option so that bury-buffer uses delete-frame
instead of iconify-frame.  But doing nothing is not an option since the
caller specifically asked to undisplay the buffer.
