Hopefully they will make it into Emacs 24.2.

What precisely do you mean here?  `delete-window' should, in principle,
delete its argument (unless it has a special `delete-window' parameter).

The basic idea is to do what you want without any advising.  Meanwhile I
have revised the assignment of side window parameters to handle window
configuration management easier but I don't intend to incoporate these
changes in 24.1.  If you want to use them, I can send you a bundle or a
separate file.  (BTW, it would be nice if someone wrote code in order to
handle > 1 speedbar buffers simultaneously.)
