Well, maybe you'd like a nice frame which includes the
right side?

But I agree, this is over-engineering. Just because it
is easily done doesn't mean one should do it.
Every time I do something good I do like three layers
or something like that. The first layer does something
good. The second layer does the same thing, only
modified for a special use case and invoked with a
prefix keystroke or whatever. The third layer is just
hacking-overdrive. Then when I start use it I almost
never use even the second layer. And if I do, I don't
use it by means of the second layer because I have
forgotten all about it - instead I use the first
layer, only with modified arguments (e.g., an absolute
path or explicit user).

Are you sure? Try 'emacs -Q' and try to do that. I
don't get C-N to work but `C-u N' works.
