The save-kill-unmod menu you added to the editor recently should have a 4th column,
window. Initially all buffers in exposed windows should be marked, but you can mark
others. This can be used to select buffers and to set up 2-window displays.
I'm not sure whether it is best to have 2 columns, for 2-window mode only, to
have one column which allows multiple marks in it, to have a way of adding more
columns by pushing at the right edge with the mouse, or what. But anyway there
should be a quick way to set up multiple buffers in multiple windows through this
kind of pointing mechanism.
I have implemented a cross between split screen via menus and c-x 4, which seems to
be closer to the right thing, as well as more general.
