I don't think people do this that often.
Probably what people do is `other-window', or
whatever command to get to the desired buffer,
and then M-x their function, then get back...

There are shortcuts, or they can be set up, to
move very rapidly between buffers,
keyboard only.

If you want to optimize a specific case in
Elisp, you could do something like

    (defun do-something-other-window ()
        (other-window 1)
        (do-something) ))

Perhaps with a check included to see where you
ended up - at least if "do-something" includes
changing the other buffer.
