Org-agenda provides the possibility to automatically restore the previous
window configuration after closing the agenda buffer using org-agenda-quit
(bound to q). This is achieved by setting
org-agenda-restore-windows-after-quit to t.

However, there is also another way to "exit" the agenda, namely by calling
org-agenda-switch-to (bound to RET) on an appropriate item. However, this
command currently does not take the previous window configuration into

I thus propose adding a new variable named e.g.
org-agenda-restore-windows-after-switch that controls whether the command
org-agenda-switch-to will restore the previous window configuration before
switching to the Org mode file of the item at point.

An example scenario where this is useful: Suppose you have a sophisticated
window configuration and call org agenda with org-agenda-window-setup set
to only-window. Then you want that window configuration to be restored also
when exiting the agenda view via org-agenda-switch-to. Otherwise, you would
lose your precious window configuration.

This behavior could be achieved by adding something like

(when (and org-agenda-restore-windows-after-switch
  (set-window-configuration org-agenda-pre-window-conf))

before the call of pop-to-buffer-same-window within org-agenda-switch-to.
