In Emacs 24.3 there are two functions `window-state-get' and
`window-state-put' which can be used to do that.  The only missing part
is to write an interface to these functions when saving and restoring
the desktop.  I don't know whether anybody has done that.

On trunk `window-state-get' was broken recently, see bug#14527.
