OK. I believe you.

The exclusion would be one and one only: namely that the buffer these
functions are supposed to show has appeared in the selected window
before. In general a user might want to see *Help* or *info* at a
location where she has seen it before and not literally jump through the
available windows of the frame. Maybe this misfires in the case at hand.
