The doc should say that the function deletes all side windows
of FRAME, or it restores all such previously deleted side windows.

There currently is no statement of just what gets toggled.
The toggling behavior is described, but what's not said is
that it is the presence/existence/validity (pick the right
term) of the side windows that is toggled.
