C-tS == hsplit
C-t^S == vsplit
C-tR == remove  (remove the current frame)
C-tQ == only    (make this the only frame)

The organization of split screen's is primitive.  I am finding it
easier to go fullscreen all the time too, only splitting the screen in
half when necessary.

Your right about a set of frames, though.  Emacs has something called
window-configuration-to-register which will save window configurations
(which are basically like splits in ratpoison) along with the buffers
and point posititions within each window.  After I store a window
configuration to a register I can do jump-to-register to pop back to
that configuration.

So, how does this sound?  Set up all yer frames with contents in each
window, ie a complicated gimp setup.  Then run

:pushframeconf g  # store the config in the 'g' register

reconfigure the frames and contents for something else, say your
wacked out pine/fetchmail thing and then

:pushframeconf m

now you can switch back and forth with

:popframeconf g
:popframeconf m

Of course :bind would be your friend here.
