Making an obnoxious feature the default wouldn't get much goodwill, I think.

IMO, instead of adding an option to call `ding', it would make more
sense to add a hook and let the user decide what do to with it. That's
post 24.1 anyway.

Well, I suppose it makes sense as an optional feature, because you
will want to unlock it. In my case, I have bs-show customized to
display the (un)?locked state of buffers and can toggle it from there,
so no need to pop the buffer.

Again, it seems useful, post-24.1.

I'm going to turn this into a wishlist, and we can revisit it after the release.
