It might be useful for arranging windows when they are initially
created, for the purpose of distributing them with equal heights/widths.
But it's a bit unexpected for that to "stick around" and affect
subsequent window resizing/deletion commands.  If the user wants that,
she should just set the variable.

Just using the value of `window-splits' would be better, yes.  Thanks.

(If in the future it turns out that we need this feature for something,
it would probably be better to reimplement it as a window parameter; I
don't think we need a special slot for it.)
