the "offending code" (after ";; Ok, ...") should be abstracted to the
function `server-switch-buffer-default' of one argument (the buffer to
be displayed), and `server-switch-buffer' should call the function
which is the value of the variable `server-display-function', which is
by default set to `server-switch-buffer-default'.

You and I will set `server-display-function' to `pop-to-buffer' and
people who like the default will keep the default.

C combines the power of assembler with the portability of assembler.
