Atomic windows.  Side windows are used for the frame-local tab-bar.

That was my idea behind window-local tab-bars back then.  Today I
think that we should instead pop up a menu of previous buffers when
moving the mouse over the mode-line's buffer-name.

By default I would display them (possibly right-adjusted) only in the
mode-line of the bottom-most-right-most window.
