In my everyday use, I display the buffer I'm working on (code, a text
file, whatever) in a full window; the only time that the window is
split is for temporary or secondary uses; for example, help windows,
occur output, ielm, an inferior mode (python, lisp, etc.), re-builder,
bs-show, etc; and I make sure that the "secondary" buffer goes always
to the bottom window and that window is resized to fit the buffer or
have a height limit (typically about a third of the frame height). If
I switch to the bottom window and do something that would cause the
top window to display another buffer (multi-occur, for example, or
selecting a new buffer from bs-show), I *don't* want the top window to
be resized.

So, in my case, a setting that would make every display-buffer to try
to fit is much worse than a minor mode that I can call from whatever
mode hook I like.
