The intention was that the content of each port was by default displayed in
the *same* window; in order to pop up a window, the content of a port would
be wrapped in a scroll flow object.  The idea is to be able to model the
sort of behaviour you get with TOCs in Dynatext or Panorama (or with a tree
control in windows): one port would contain the unexpanded view of a portion
of a TOC, and the other port would contain the expanded view; so clicking on
the unexpanded view would have the effect of expanding it, and vice versa.
