Hi Casey,

Multiple 'desktops' with different frame layouts but interchangeable
windows seems a lot like a single 'desktop' with different frame
layouts. If I understand what you mean, the little hack I posted a
while back about saving and restoring frame layouts (also in the
sample rc file in ratpoison) is what you want.

I s'pose the only thing missing is the last window which would always
be the same.
