thank you, that was exactly the line that I was looking for.
I wasn't thinking elisp code as in an extension module, more along the lines of elisp code that I would enter into my .emacs .   Especially for something like display-buffer-alist I really dislike the M-x customize functionality

What precisely failed?  I didn't look at it but it hooks in at a lower
level (namely that of `display-buffer-function') so it should still work
with Emacs 24.

Elisp code should not do that.  `display-buffer-alist' is reserved for
users as in

(customize-set-variable
 'display-buffer-alist '((".*" . (display-buffer-same-window . nil))))

Unfortunately, so far there's no common agreement on what the ALIST
argument of `display-buffer-same-window' is supposed to accomplish.
