I've implemented an approximation of that for my vi emulation; see the
(incorrectly named) function close_siblings_of() here:

Essentially you can look through the view tree (_G._VIEWS) until you find
your view's parent, then unsplit the other side. It's not perfect,
especially if the other side is further split.

Mitchell, would you support adding a "view.remove" API to remove the current
view? While on the subject, what about a way of swapping two views?

How do you mean? As far as i can tell, you can keep splitting as long as
there's space.

I think this should be possible as well by looking through _G._VIEWS and
taking into account the "vertical" field.
