This is a completely theoretical discussion.

So take a few thousand steps back and look at (single)tty frames, X11
frames, and frame-level tabs.  Do tty frames look more like X11 frames
or like frame-level tabs?

To me they look like frame-level tabs: only one can be displayed at
a time, you can't "move" them, you can "resize" them, they're all
displayed at the same place, ...

That's all there is to it really.  That's all I was saying.

What we should do with this depends on way too many details to even
start talking about it before there's any resemblance of code to support
tabs somewhere.
