I think the docstrings must tell that.  Because the names suggest the
opposite.  Something like "this function is for internal use only - it
is valid as an action function in the ALIST argument of
display-buffer...don't call it directly" or so?

Problematic in this regard is that there _are_ other functions like that
that are not internal AFAIK - `pop-to-buffer' for example.  How can one
distinguish them?

Michael.
