Multiple unit frames of the same type with different configurations. #1014

    I have actually found pitbull to do a better job at certain things (displaying buffs, showing my focus bar) than other addons that were specifically tailored for that use. It would be even better if I could, for example create 3 player unit frames, one in the top left of my screen with a configuration that would show my buffs, another in the center with a configuration to just show my focus and a third elsewhere to have my normal player frame.

    Please consider this as I feel it would be humongously useful.

    I've actually had this in progress for quite some time. Just have never gotten around to finishing it.

    Some major caveats should be given here.

    1) BACKUP YOUR CONFIG FILE. Once you start using that branch you can't use your config file with the main branch. If you don't know how to backup your config file, I wouldn't advise you try this at all.

    2) Things are known to be broken on that branch. Anchoring of groups to other groups is broken in strange ways. Some modules may not work properly, I know ThreatBar is broken.

    3) This branch is not packaged. You're going to have to use a git and I'm not sure if embedded modules is in a great place, since I haven't used embedded modules (which is how things are organized in git) in a long time.

    Long story short. This is not ready for everyone to use this.
