You might be interested in the page on the emacswiki about this [1]. My
config is detailed on there (along with lots of other peoples'
solutions!).

The one thing that I use that I really like is a function called
delete-frame-ex, which is hopefully below

I bind this to C-x C-c, which means that you can call the "magic emacs"
command on a load of files, edit them in different frames and when you
hit C-x C-c, you don't kill something you were working on in a different
desktop. For me, this is at least as important as spawning the frames in
the first place!
