It would be good to think about how such a thing could also
be used for things like ECB where they need to be able to
impose some structure on the window layout and make sure that
the user does not mess it up accidentally (i.e. there is
one main window which the user can use whichever way she wants,
and it is surrounded by several other windows (like a gdb window,
a speedbar window, ...)).
