I never do.

Not at all.  It could be just what I was looking for when I opened the
thread.  It's hard not to think the proper function would be called
yank-pop-to-match.  I'm not sure how it would manage to do both the
things that are needed for it to feel right.  It would seem to require
that this-command (last-command) be both yank and yank-pop-to-match at
the same time.
