It's not easy to find a general solution for this.  Suppose you edit the
same buffer in two windows A and B, temporarily switch to another buffer
in window B, continue editing in window A, and eventually quit window B.
In this case you want point in window B be at the position it had before
you switched to another buffer in it.

In the case at hand we could call `kill-buffer' in `exit-splash-screen'.
But can't we do the insertion before or while the buffer is displayed?
