Setting point

If you're in an Emacs with *scratch* not displayed, this is a noop:

(progn (set-buffer (get-buffer "*scratch*")) (goto-char (point-max)))

When you switch to *scratch*, point will be wherever it used to be.

I don't think Emacs has always behaved this way?  It changed perhaps
5-10 years ago?

Anyway, how do you set point in buffers these days?  :-)
