I guess the main reason for a separate `pop-to-buffer-same-window' is to
provide a separate command for users to bind to.  Is that the reason?
If so, is `pop-to-buffer-same-window' supposed to supplant interactive
calls to switch-to-buffer?

Someone who uses dedicated windows (Stefan?) should probably weigh in.
