Sounds like you want layouts, a new feature in 4.1.0.

Layouts aren't documented [all that well]
( But for a quick intro: the
possible layout commands are:

        layout new
        layout save <name>
        layout next
        layout prev
        layout show
        layout title [title]
        layout select
        layout autosave on|off
        layout number [number]

The commands do what you would expect them to do. :)

Someone should totally write up the documentation!
