How comes that C-h e splits the window horizontally?

The idea to automatically select a window that has never been selected
before is not overly intuitive IMHO.

The most recently displayed window might be the window that gets
deleted and so we would have to either modify the semantics of
'window-use-time' (to optionally include the case that the window has
been created without being selected) or add a new slot to the window
structure and have 'delete-window' act accordingly if set.
