Richard suggested to me a couple of weeks ago that common code could
go in frame.c and frameio.c.

If you want to help, we could partition the work. For *fns.c and
*term.c, a lot of the work can be done incrementally. But others have
suggested that *menu.c is probably better dealt with by merging the
code with #ifdef blocks where necessary, and moving a couple of
functions that really are platform dependent to *fns.c, so this
probably has to be done in one hit.
