I must say I'd be stunned if you could show me any evidence that an elisp
implementation would incur any noticeable preformance hit: if you look at
the C code of display-buffer you'll see it has no loop, and if you look at
the calls to display-buffer you'll see it's never called inside a loop.
I.e. its performance is completely uninteresting.
