I won't even attempt to approach this from an elisp perspective but
have you considered just launching multiple emacs instances, perhaps
with different default frame names, to house the different purposes
you're using it for? It's almost like you're using emacs as an OS at
this point and launching your PHP IDE and your Mail Reader, etc.

Just a thought. Obviously, it's not ideal.
