Agreed.  (actually, what I do instead is to use find-library from
a dedicated window (or a minibuffer-only window), which forces find-library
to create a new frame for the library)

Sure.  Although I'm wondering: are there many users you use both find-file
and find-file-other-window, as well as other <foo> vs
<foo>-other-window commands?

I'd be happy to change all that: remove/deprecate the <foo>-other-window
commands and make the <foo> commands use either the same window or another
depending on some user configuration.
