What is an "action function" and what is the "desired position" in the
`anything-current-buffer'?  I suppose `bury-buffer' does restore the old
position the buffer shown instead of the buried buffer had in that
window before the buried buffer was shown.  So the sequence is

(1) Window W shows buffer B with window-start S and window-point P.

(2) In W you show buffer BB instead.

(3) You bury buffer BB.  `bury-buffer' now shows buffer B again with
    window-point P and, if possible, window-start S.

But for some reason after (3) you want to show B with another
`window-point' position.  Is that analysis correct?
