[XWEM]: Fun with frames

I found another user problem with xwem (read: Steve has gotten himself
stuck and can't find a way out).

After having about 50 xwem client windows open and getting totally
lost I figured it was time to start working with multiple xwem
frames.  A few `M-x xwem-make-frame' later and I could pretend that I
was organised.

Very soon thereafter, I found that all these new frames had names like
"Frame 0: default", "Frame 1: default", "Frame 3: default".  Now
there's gotta be a way to rename these frames... And there is!
`xwem-frame-set-name'.  Now here's my first question...

How do I rename a frame when there is no XEmacs frame in sight?

Can I create a new xwem frame _and_ give it a name at the same time?

Can I start an application and have it go into a specific frame
without being in that frame when I start the app?  Something like the
following pseudo code...

  (xwem-switch-frame (xwem-find-frame "foo"))

Can I switch frames by name instead of doing multiple `H-x H-n' or
`H-x H-p' until I get to the frame I want?

That should be enough to keep me going for a while. :-)
