    It seems to me as if set-window-point and goto-char don't do the same thing.
    set-window-point basically executes the following statements:
    --- snip ---
      if (w == XWINDOW (selected_window)
          && XBUFFER (w->buffer) == current_buffer)
        Fgoto_char (pos);
        set_marker_restricted (w->pointm, pos, w->buffer);
    --- snip ---

This is right--they are not the same.  set-window-point sets
the point value of the window you specify, whether or not
it is selected, and regardless of what buffer it is displaying.

I thought this was clearly documented, but if you did not
find it clear enough, can you show me the specific places
in the manual which I should clarify?
