Thanks.  I found at last how this would be useful. ;-)  I can
have several emacs-w3m frames for various purposes.  For example,
one is for news sites, the other is for search engines.  And,
when I delete the former frame, only emacs-w3m buffers which
visit news sites will be killed by default.  Perhaps only a
thing which I haven't understood yet is why `w3m-fb-mode' is not
made active if `w3m-popup-frames' is non-nil.

I strongly recommend merging of this package into emacs-w3m.
I probably need to persuade users and developers, so I'll write
how it is worthly to merge this package into emacs-w3m in the
next message, in Japanese. (If there's no comment, I'll install
it in the CVS trunk.)
