This information records, for each frame, whether it is visible, invisible, or iconified. But it does not record the frame stacking order: which frames are in front of which other frames. This is an important part of a user's idea of what a frame configuration should be: Restoring a frame config should restore the set of frames as they were when the config was saved, including their positions front to back. Feature request: Add this information to frame configs. Perhaps we could add to each frame, as a frame parameter, its current stacking order. Then we could perhaps make `set-frame-configuration' restore this saved order. I'm assuming this info can be obtained somehow from the window manager. (I'm no expert on this.) (I wonder too if we couldn't have a command to raise or lower a frame just one notch at at time in the stacking order. Currently, we can only raise it to the front or lower it to the back.)
