Nope. I can see all that I need through "p". The actual program output
for my particular program is barely relevant during runtime, and completely
irrelevant during debug time.

Because I _don't want_ to see a window that I don't want to see,
*output* in this case. I like to have complete control over all my Emacs
windows at all time, with no irrelevant windows to annoy me.

It changed two calls to `set-window-dedicated-p` to use the new custom
var, which is still t by default. Why should this worry you? I can set
the flag to 'soft, and you can keep it t.
