Indeed, but as mentioned earlier in this thread, I find these names
confusing, since the natural meaning of frame-configuration, to me, is
"the configuration of a frame", i.e. what we currently call
a window-configuration or window-state.

"frame" be used as an adjective, really?

I'm pretty sure we can do better.
