[Zope] Keeping track of frames

Frames are a client side feature of which Zope knows nothing.
It is very hard to synchronize multiple frames on the client side (which is
done with JavaScript) and Zope.

However, there are few reasons to use frames since Zope creates your pages
on the fly. Use layers (<div></div>) or similar where you would have a frame
and fill them each from a template. This is far easier and much more
