No worries. I agree that the behaviour is good but I think we can do
this more clearly than Emacs does.

The tricky part seems to be that they first change the original
window, then split, then try to put the original window back the way
it was by hand. I think it's simpler to split first and then only
change the new window, like this:

  (defun slime-goto-definition-other-window (definition)
    (slime-goto-source-location (slime-definition.location definition))
    (switch-to-buffer (current-buffer)))

  (defun slime-pop-to-other-window ()
    "Pop to the other window, but not to any particular buffer."
    (pop-to-buffer (current-buffer) t))

I made this change and then committed. Let me know if I mucked up the
behaviour somehow.
