bug#4476: 23.1; frame configuration,frame parameters - how about frame s

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#4476: 23.1; frame configuration,frame parameters - how about frame stacking order too?
Date: Fri, 18 Sep 2009 00:07:34 -0700

Enhancement request:
A frame configuration saves the frame parameters of a set of
frames. This information records, for each frame, whether it is
visible, invisible, or iconified.
But it does not record the frame stacking order: which frames are in
front of which other frames. This is an important part of a user's
idea of what a frame configuration should be: Restoring a frame config
should restore the set of frames as they were when the config was
saved, including their positions front to back.
Feature request: Add this information to frame configs. Perhaps we
could add to each frame, as a frame parameter, its current stacking
order. Then we could perhaps make `set-frame-configuration' restore
this saved order.
I'm assuming this info can be obtained somehow from the window
manager. (I'm no expert on this.)
(I wonder too if we couldn't have a command to raise or lower a frame
just one notch at at time in the stacking order. Currently, we can
only raise it to the front or lower it to the back.)
