You cannot display the same window object (i.e. the vertical frame) in more
than one place at the same time, if that is what you are asking. If you just
want to change the vertical frame's position in the split, e.g. to make it
the first child window instead of the second, you could call linkBefore() or
linkAfter() on the frame. If you want to actually move the child window to a
completely different parent window, you could call reparent() on it.

Hope this helps,
