However, `display-buffer-other-frame' is already defined in window.el;
it's a user-level function, so I don't think we can use that name. 

`display-buffer-existing-frame' would work.

It would make sense to add `display-buffer-reuse-frame' to
display-buffer--other-frame-action, at least for my style.
