Additional info:
SSH_CLIENT and SSH_CONNECTION environmental variables could be used automatic load of certain layouts

It would be nice to have support for saving multiple window layouts.

Example: I run weechat on my server and connect to it from different locations, my laptop, my desktop at home, dekstop from work etc.
All those computers have different screen sizes and resolutions, so my weechat needs to be splitted differently on each location. For my laptop weechat is splitted in 3 parts but on my desktop weechat is splitted in 8 windows.

Possible commands could be:

/layout save name1
/layout save name2
/layout apply name1
/layout apply name2

Neat feature that is not necessary but would be nice to have is to be able to somehow load a certain layout automatically when attaching to a screen session at a certain location. So when connecting to weechat from my laptop I would get the weechat laptop layout automatically etc.
