That's why I have

(defun sds-split-window (size)
  "Split the window (sideways if it is wide) and switch buffer."
  (interactive "P")
  (if (< split-width-threshold (window-width))
      (split-window-right size)
      (split-window-below size))
  (switch-to-buffer (other-buffer)))

bound to [f2] and I (almost) never use C-x 2 or C-x 3.

I understand and recognize that some people like to show the same buffer
in two windows, but I don't think I ever do, and I wish there were a way
to ensure that this actually never happen without an express request
from me. E.g., make the buffer lists associated with windows disjoint.
