IIUC Eli would find C-x 4 5 more consistent for other-window-prefix (I
hope I ran the substitutions correctly; apologies if not).

Personally I like the current arrangement: I think of it as "C-x X X for
other-Y-prefix", with

- X=4 ⇒ Y=window
- X=5 ⇒ Y=frame
- X=t ⇒ Y=tab

I find "mash X to run in new Y" simpler to remember than "press X then 5
to run in new Y".
