Indeed it does, I was a bit blind there. I usually consider those functions
with names ending in -1 as internal to implementation, so I haven't even looked
there, so I missed that one is actually exposed to lisp.

Now question is, as pointed in answer to Eli, why should window-list not have
same semantics as the rest, since both get-buffer-window, and window-list-1, it
makes the API a bit assymetric and arcane, when its already there and costs
basically nothing.
