the user to invoke further actions (e.g. by mouse gestures on
The temporary window should be closed when the user moves the pointer

the window.
Commands and presentation actions are defined in the command table of
I tried to implement this as follows:

   (with-menu (s (get-frame-pane *my-frame* 'interactor))
      (... do the output to stream s ...)
      (... give the window the right size and expose it ...)
      (tracking-pointer (s)
	 (... clauses ...))

1. Is the WITH-MENU macro the right way to build temporary windows that

2. Is the TRACKING-POINTER macro the right way to dispatch user

3. If yes, which tracking-pointer clause would implement the
pointer-out behavior?
