No, that's not completely wrong.  `split-window-sensibly' has a final
special case for "there's only one window" where it simply splits

But anyway, the result is that on any customary display the first
invocation of `split-window-sensibly' either creates two windows below
or next to each other, and any further invocation does nothing.

That might be problematic.  With split-window-{below,right} you can be
quite sure that a new window is created, while that's not true for
split-window-sensibly.  Well, for ediff it's not because it'll delete
all but one window initially, and sensible splitting in the one-window
scenario is guaranteed to split (with the exception of
window-min-{height,width}, of course).
