I don't grok it yet.  What's the 'switch-to-prev-buffer' call for?

I would have to understand the "behavior" first.  One approach would
be to move the user-error and 'switch-to-buffer-preserve-window-point'
handling into the interactive specification handling and for the rest
do what 'pop-to-buffer-same-window' does.

Something like "I never want to show another buffer in this window,
please remind me if I accidentally try to do that".
