There's some pretty deep grass, here. I only just came across "Side
Windows", which is pretty interesting -- that could conceivably do away
with Gnus' whole homemade window configuration setup.

If Marcin ends up patching `display-buffer-record-window' to un-set
buffer history when appropriate, I think it would also be worth
mentioning that function in the docs, as the go-to function for setting
the quit-restore parameter.
