The window object is fully available, just its buffer (aka contents)
slot is nil.  We cannot select it and setting any geometry related
things might cause problems.  But I see no problems changing its point
or its buffer (the latter being temporarily in the combination_limit
slot).  So the problem is not how to get the window from the
configuration but how to get the configuration in the first place.

In a zombie window?  We simply don't unshow a buffer in it because
there is no way to see a zombie window unless it gets restored via
'set-window-configuration'.  This means that 'kill-buffer' will leave
the buffer in any zombie window until all references to configurations
referencing it are removed and the window gets no more marked.
Neither replace_buffer_in_windows nor replace_buffer_in_windows_safely
can see zombie windows.
