I would like to add the functions xref-find-references-other-window and

We already have xref-find-definitions-other-window (C-x 4 .) and 
xref-find-definitions-other-frame (C-x 5 .), but xref-find-references (M-?) has 
no equivalent other-window/frame versions.
Are these really necessary, considering that the prefix-commands C-x 4
4/C-x 5 5 already exists?  C-x 4 . (as opposed to C-x 4 M-.) is already
a bit confusing, and overriding ?, that some people use instead of C-h
to list the bindings under a prefix might not help.

I'm inclined to agree.

David, how do you feel about typing the slightly longer sequences 'C-x 4 4 M-?' and 'C-x 5 5 M-?' rather than having separate commands?
