Just a note of clarification. The idea of framelets was yours, but I
adopted the term and use it a bit differently.

I am unfortunately unable to understand the details of your
suggestion. By that I do not want to say it is good, I am just not
sure I understand it.

You restrict it to four framelettes in a frame. I am guessing that
this is because this will be easy to recognize, but I am not sure.

My suggestion is that any window could act as a kind of framelet. This
means basically that

- Windows inside it forms a window group.
- Frame-related commands (C-x 1, etc) commands work inside the framelet.
- It should visually clear that it is a framelet.

same as what he calls a window group.
