I did this because it turns out to be useful.
If a specific caller wants some other mode, it's easy to switch.
So this causes no problem.

      Most likely the best way to make it
    cleaner is to start by renaming with-output-to-temp-buffer: the buffer isn't
    temporary (at least not in the usual sense, as in with-temp-buffer).

There is no need for that incompatibility, and I don't want it.
There isn't a problem here.  Please let's work on improvements
that will really make Emacs better, not on this area.
etc/TODO lists so many things that need to be done.
