    At least on the lisp 
    level, we would have to maintain compatibility aliases effectively 
    forever, doubling the number of lisp symbols dealing with these 

I don't think it has to be forever.  After a few years,
we could drop the old names.

We could rename `window' to `pane', but not rename `frame'.
That way, there would be no incompatibility, and only one stage
of renaming would be required.

I am still not saying we _should_ do this.
