I'm not closely following this thread, but this discussion is similar to
the "window group" proposal. There is patches in the previous threads.

Basically window groups are groups of windows that behave somehwat like
the "framelettes" discussed here. Window operations that affect other
windows only affect the other windows in the same group as the current
window. So, delete-other-windows, for instance, only deletes the other
windows in the same group.
