Well, yes, sure (one, or two if using a minibufferless /
minibuffer-only setup). But my point is that desktop-clear allows the
user to set up buffers s/he doesn't want to "clear", so perhaps it
makes sense todo the same with frames. OTOH, perhaps not, and just
going for the easy kill-them-all, Simon de Monfort's style.

That, and also that it restores "dead" frames.
