I posted a patch along these lines - please tell me whether it is what
you had in mind.

I'm almost 100% convinced that it doesn't DTRT.  That parameter would
have to be passed on to Fselect_frame and from there back to
Fselect_window.  As I said earlier, the problem is that we temporarily
violate the invariant window_frame (selected_window) == selected_frame.
It's like having two routines for setting the character and byte
positions of point separately and calling a display routine in between.
