BTW, there is also a new command 'same-window-prefix' to request
displaying the next command's buffer in the same window to override
the setting that would otherwise display the buffer in another window.

But the problem is that currently it's not bound, and I can't find
a good mnemonic keybinding.

'C-x 4 0' is already taken.
'C-x 4 1' could be reserved for another command that would delete other windows
          before displaying the next buffer in the remaining single window.

Maybe 'C-x 4 s'?
