The more I think about it, the more I believe it makes no sense to
separate cleanup from frameset-restore. It is not an additional,
optional part of frameset restoration, it is an integral part of it,
even in these cases where the cleanup consists in doing nothing.

If frameset-restore just created new frames, separating both
operations would be reasonable. But frameset restoration isn't like
that, it already can reuse exiting frames; it moves them, changes
their visibility, resizes them. The whole experience of restoring a
frameset includes deciding what to do with the remaining frames.
