Considered that, thanks. These aren't informative, they're dialogue
widgets of one or another kind, and I hadn't gotten the connection.
They need to pass their information, do their thing, and then go away,
as a new instance will be needed each time. I think.
Also, I think they need not to be modal, because the user may want to
consult other stuff in the process, and hanging things up would be a
real Bad Idea.
Finally got some response here, and its valuable!
