I think the name is OK, but the docstring needs to clearly explain what
is the intended behavior (which, I must say, I do not know, but I guess
it's something like "the frame is not split top-down", except we're
talking about a window).  It's more important to make sure that
the docstring is clear and describes a useful behavior, than to make
sure it describes the actual behavior of its current implementation.

That's OK: this code is (now) available for 0 efforts, so rewriting it
wouldn't mean that much effort has been wasted.

Seems reasonable.  Where do you use it?
