I run exclusively on the console, ie no X.
I hve lots of buffers open, and prefer to organize them in
frames, with  ech frame holding related buffers.

If I could place each frame on a separate virtual console where
I'm already logged in,
then I could switch among those frames by hitting alt-f<n>, and
then use emacs' buffer switching commands in that frame to manage
the  orde rin which buffers are cycled through in that particular

At present I move among frames by naming them first; but if I
forget to move to the named frame first, then I end up with
buffers that I'd ideally leave in one frame getting accessed in another.
