Thank you. I tried it. It was basically what I was looking for.

But, (rant) I just don't like the liberties developers take with the windows 
layout, which may be based *in part* on the emacs infrastructure.

The way windows popup randomly all over the place and the original layout is 
never restored is a major annoyance in emacs and this package is no exception.

But it refers to the correct header, so that's good enough.
