This sounds a lot like virtual desktops. The only thing I could see as
being painful is organizing and maintaining all the groups. I suppose
you could have some regexp to match the window names which then
determines which group its in...

Something that this could also lend itself to is saving and restoring
configurations of windows. So when you want to work with the gimp, it
puts all the toolbar windows, etc in a your own specified layout...

or you could save and restore window configuration like the emacs
command `window-configuration-to-register'.
