`find-library' isn't bound to any key, but I think it probably should

other people?  I use the command quite a lot...

I think the "other window" version should simply be a separate command, like find-function-other-window, xref-find-definitions-other-window, etc.

Having a default binding for it would be a bit odd, considering find-library doesn't have one.

2. I think that the other-window version is far more useful than
   the same-window version.  So if other-window behavior is available
   only via a prefix arg I'd prefer that it be the other way around:
   a prefix arg uses the same window; no prefix arg uses another
   window.  (Yes, that would be a change in the default behavior.)

-1 from me.

The command now uses pop-to-buffer-same-window, which is quite
customisable, as I understand things.  (I haven't looked into the
new-fangled window popping controlling functions.)  So I think this
should be customisable ... somehow ... by the users now.

It's... not as easy as one might hope. And if you customize `find-library' to use the other window this way, there will be no way to have it use the current window just this one time. And vice versa.
