You could try `M-x winner-mode RET'. When you have winner-mode thus
activated, Emacs makes window-configurations "undoable". Use 
`C-x <left>' to switch to the previous configuration. ("redo" is on
`C-x <right>'. It does not preserve point, though.

To get this buffer local, you could eval

(make-local-variable 'search-ring)

in your buffer (use a hook etc. as appropriate).

In order to get this window local, you'd have to hack Emacs' C core,
I'm afraid.
