I do not like that this variable has higher priority than `display-buffer-alist'. Action argument of `display-buffer' is more appropriate since it keeps ability to customize placement of buffers with particular names through `display-buffer-alist'.
> Thank you for suggesting `display-buffer-pop-up-window', current way of suppressing pop-up frames is unreliable. I am considering another option: '(nil (inhibit-switch-frame . t)) and I am unsure which variant is better. Actually I can not say that I really understand supposed ways to use `display-buffer' and related functions. My original expectation was that emacs should have a high level function for buffers similar to "*Completions*".
