HTML framesets use the `rows' and `cols' attributes to split the screen
vertically and horizontally into frames (Emacs windows).

The above window configuration could be defined by HTML framesets as:

<FRAMESET rows="30%, 55%, 15%">
  <FRAMESET cols="75%, 25%">
    <FRAME src="top-window-1">
    <FRAME src="top-window-2">
  <FRAMESET cols="25%, 75%">
    <FRAMESET rows="50%, 25%, 25%">
      <FRAME src="sidebar-1">
      <FRAME src="sidebar-2">
      <FRAME src="sidebar-3">
    <FRAME src="edit-area">
  <FRAME src="tool-window">

What's the problem with GUD?

IOW, to "dedicate" a window to a buffer.
