I didn't follow what you were saying as lockstep has a special meaning when
debugging multi-threaded programs - that's all.  I now think/see you are just
saying replace all the windows for one thread with those for another.

Do you think then that tabbed buffers, as Richard proposes, might provide a
solution, with one tab per thread and multiple windows per tab.
