Thanks for the example and the implied teaching!

I experimented with the use of display-buffer-alist and the org-goto UI.
E.g. with the config:

    (defun experiment/202110141141 (buffer alist)
      (display-buffer-in-side-window
       buffer
       (list '(window-width . 23)
             '(side . right)
             '(slot . 0))))

    (setq display-buffer-alist
          '(("\\*Org Help\\*" . (experiment/202110141141))))

AFAICS this has an effect for org-goto.  The user can control the
appearance of the org-goto UI.

BTW I think the name *Org Help* for the UI buffer could be better.

Since org-goto in main is still broken I'll commit the fix for org-goto
which kicks out the use of the macro org-no-popups (but not the macro
itself since it's used elsewhere AFAICS.)

Max, Ihor!  If you see the necessity of refinement please keep going!  


Best regards,
