actually that was my first idea as well. Just the other way around, I
wanted it to pop by default and switch with prefix.

I just like the pop-to-buffer behavior better. I think it is easy to
type 'C-x 1', in the rare cases when the other window is taking to much
screen space. Easier than typing `C-x 2' `C-c r l' `C-x o' if you want
to view your last source buffer with your full-frame REPL. ( `C-c r' is
my binding for slime-selector.)

Two reasons why I dropped this idea:

- I wanted to support a third, user provideable function. This gives the
user for example the possibility to differenciate the switching behavior
based on buffer name.  The semantics of a prefix for this function are

- I could not find an easy way of passing the prefix into the selection
methods and into all recursive calls of slime-selector.

	* slime.el (def-slime-selector-method ??): Close help buffer if
	still open after final selection.
