Enhancement request:
 
A frame configuration saves the frame parameters of a set of
frames. 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.)
