That's what I had in mind, yes.

We already have functions for accessing elements of lists and changing
lists.

What functions are you alluding to here, specifically?  And what did
you mean by "an Emacs window"?

My idea was that these windows would be "special", in that they could
only display some special buffer or maybe only a string.  About the
only function we'd need is to set the coordinates where such a window
will be displayed.  Everything else, including the dimensions, will be
determined by the text to be displayed there.
