I have no fully-formed opinion yet, but at the moment it seems to me  
that this gives the most consistent and customizable behaviour with  
the least amount of code.  FWIW, attached is a patch which I have been  
using for quite a while.  I found the resulting slime-selector  
behavior much nicer, YMMV of course.

Yes, there are several variables and mechanisms which customize buffer/ 
window/frame behaviour and they also interact.  It requires a bit of  
fiddling to get the desired outcome.
