It might be possible to do it using the FCFDock functions. The FloatingChatFrame.lua file has a bunch of these functions with the following comment above them.

------Docking related functions for the new docking system


Since we've been discussing allowing multiple docks, this code is designed to be mostly-OO. Please try not to use global variables.

(Theoretically, all of these functions may be put in a metatable to allow, e.g., "Dock:SelectWindow(chatWindow)".

To keep with this, please ensure that "dock" is the first argument of every function.)

Unfortunately it looks like some of it is still hard coded for GENERAL but I'm sure with a bit of tweaking it could be possible. It was one thing I was planning on figuring out when I spotted it. I currently have 3 chat specific plugins for nUI and I was planning on working out if those new functions would allow me to create a second dockable chatframe and allow nUI users to dock chatframes to either side of the screen.

I can't promise anything but if I feel in the mood I'll try and dabble with it somewhat over the next couple of weeks when I get a chance. Otherwise, good luck on your project
