When my Emacs frame is small, C-x 4 b etc. split the window
horizontally.  At other times, Emacs splits it vertically.  C-x 2 and
C-x 3 give me explicit control over how I want the windows split.  Once
I've split the display as I place, I use C-x 4 b (or C-x 4 C-o etc) to
open the buffer I want.


Gnus should be more complicated.
