;;; Commentary:
;; This is am implementation of multiple frame support for the ECB. The
;; original design was fairly easy to implement and since it will be a long time
;; until ECB 2.0 it seems obvious that this should be done as a temporary
;; solution.
;; In order to use this just create a new frame and run 'ecb-activate. You can
;; create as many frames and run ECB in any of them.
;;; Notes:
;; Because ECB is now global it is never really deactivated. You can deactivate
;; ECB in a frame if you want but the advice will still be around.
;; You have a separate ECB methods, directory, and source buffer for each ECB
;; frame.
;;; Install:
;; Place a (require 'ecb-multiframe) at the end of your normal ECB
;; initialization
;;; TODO:
;; - Should we have a separeate speedbar buffer? What about eshell?
;; - I should allocate my own ecb-compile-window for each frame.
;; - ECB deactivation isn't currently supported.
;; - Make sure I don't have any hooks that might run on deleted buffers.
;; - Make sure we clean up when a frame is deleted.
;; - Is it possible to migrate some of this code into default-frame-alist
;; instead of using a hook?
