It's a joke, right?  Emacs adding DWIM now means that if you want the simple,
straightforward behavior of old you need to write it yourself?

I'd sooner copy the Emacs 22 `display-buffer' code and just use that, except
that it's in C. ;-)

You are not making it easier for users (which includes Emacs-Lisp users)...
