Another quickie accept-values-pane question

I think this was on the net awhile back, but I'm not sure what the answer was,
so here goes. Can accepting-values be called within accepting-values?
Yes, but it really only makes sense to call the nested dialog from
inside of something like an ACCEPT-VALUES-COMMAND-BUTTON.
wish to localize the :resynchronize-every-pass to each item within the dialog
to minimize update. Is this okay?
I don't think this will work. (Dynamic Windows had a feature like
this, but CLIM has to draw the line somewhere. :-)
I'm thinking of using the top-level
accept-value-pane without resynchronizing, where each of my dialog params
have accepting-values with resynch set. Will I gain in update time?
If you can succeed in making it work, you may gain somewhat in update
time. But probably not a lot, unless the dialogs are really quite huge.
If the dialogs are huge, you may want to use ACCEPT-VALUES-COMMAND-BUTTON
to pop up an "internal" dialog on request, instead of having the whole
dialog displayed at once. (Of course, this is really just a matter of
my personal taste in UI styles...)
