    find-file-noselect is a huge function which runs major modes, looks for
    file-local variables, looks for other buffers already visiting the file,
    checks the buffer if it is still uptodate w.r.t the file, ...

So what?

    It's nowhere near "clean and abstract".

Viewed from outside, it might seem clean and abstract:
a function you can call to do a very clear job with a simple
description (even though its implementation is complex).
