I think we need both:

1. per-frame tabs are useful to switch window configurations
   (in other IDEs named "perspectives").

2. per-window tabs are useful e.g. to display a list of buffers
   visited in the window (`window-prev-buffers').  This is similar to
   other IDEs where per-window tabs can be used to select from a set
   of buffers like compilation, help, messages, etc.

Could you please provide examples of using side windows and atomic windows?
