Not sure why this went astray so much.  Let me try bringing it back on
track.

display-buffer-alist is a defcustom.  The issue at hand is to offer
users a way of customizing display-buffer-alist such that buffers
whose names match "*Async Shell Command*" will not be displayed unless
they have something to show the user.

Martin, what can we add to the display-buffer-alist's defcustom to
allow users easy customization to that effect?

Thanks.
