Like others have said: very often. Many commands split windows or change
the window configuration other ways. Command "C-c <left>" (winner-undo)
is about the fastest possible way to get back to previous window
configurations. The main point of winner-mode is the automatically saved
history of window configurations.

Not in the sense of history. With tab-bar-mode or manual saving of
window configuration a user must plan window changes before.

But the original question was about new default bindings. I think "C-x
4" keymap would be a logical place if the original "C-c <left>" and "C-c
<right>" are a problem.
