There may be a misunderstanding here.  Those recipes are for a bug that
has already been fixed: this code is now working like it should.

Are you saying that you could make the code use other functions to
produce the same behaviour, i.e. refactor it?  That's fine by me: feel
free to try, but I don't see a lot of motivation for it.

Same here.  I'm not an expert in the `display-buffer-alist' DSL, but I
think you are again papering over the fact that between
xref-find-definitions-other-window and the final destination buffer
there is sometimes an *xref* buffer in its own window.  So I don't think
'inhibit-same-window' wouldn't help here.  But again, feel free to
rework the code to your standards and if it passes these two tests, it's
a good start.
