Hey Matthew,

  please send me this function ... ;-)

Thanks for all the suggestions. I found a really helpful function that
I'm surprised nobody mentioned, though: set-window-dedicated-p prevents
Emacs from messing with a particular window. I wound up writing a small
function that sets up my windows as described, calls this function for
the shell window, and then calls the window-configuration-to-register
function that Johan mentioned. Seems to work pretty well.

Thanks again,
Matt
