I'd eventually want to rename `split-window' to `new-window' or
`make-new-window' and give it a fourth argument - the buffer to show in
the new window.  Presumably, more than 90% of all calls of
`split-window' are made to display another buffer in the new window, so
doing a `set-window-buffer' with the old window's buffer doesn't strike
me as very reasonable.

Alternatively, we could try to show the current buffer in the new window
as `make-frame' does but I'm not very fond of such a solution and it
certainly would break things in a number of cases.
