I'm somewhat doubtful this would be well-directed effort.  In my
experience, he complexity that beginners react badly to is not
multi-window/multi-buffer, it's 1,001 spiky keystroke sequences.

I couldn't help but notice that this (having each buffer tied to a single
frame) really sounds like One On One Emacs.
