This won't work well in one particular case (Michael Heerdegen recently
mentioned it on Emacs-help and I try to recall what he wrote): Suppose
when switching to a file interactively via `find-file' you set
`display-buffer-overriding-action' to some value for displaying the
file.  Now that command might pop up a window for completing the
filename calling `display-buffer' in a nested fashion.  Should that call
adhere to `display-buffer-overriding-action` or, as probably expected,
use the built-in or user-defined behavior for the *Completions* buffer?
