Thank you so much. It provides me a show case, from which I get
the following:

1. A layout consists of one or more frames.

2. Each frame has zero or one window.

3. The frames are effect of command `split'. Or `layout new'?

4. The frames in each layout can be tranversed by command `focus'.
    If a frame is focused, all the commands like `split', `screen',
    `caption`, and so on would happen in this frame.

5. Each window has zero or one group.

6. If a window has a group, then `prev' and `next' would only switch
    among all the windows of this group.

7. If a window has no group, then `prev' and `next' would switch
    among all the windows of screen.

8. The point is to create groups of windows, which is done by,
    first `layout new', then `screen //group', finally
    `layout save'.

9. The group window can be created without `layout new', but
    without it, later created groups are children of the first
    group, instead of sibling of the first group.

I wonder if the above are true. But I'm sure it is the begin of
the try-and-error process.

Thanks again,
