CLIM with multiple frames

Is there any portable way to generate 2 or more windows that
stays on the screen simutaneiously with CLIM and are created
during run time by a single application?
OPEN-WINDOW-STREAM will create a window for doing i/o on.
It can be done with multitasking package (i.e. running multiple
run-frame-top-level) but this is not portable.
CLIM-SYS:MAKE-PROCESS is portable.
I might be missing
something, but this seems to be a major constraint on CLIM.
I'd think the top-level loop could just poll every "child frame"
and read their commands. But somehow CLIM does not allow this
functionality and without the CLIM source code implementing another
event-loop is the last thing I'd want to do....
There are also "activity frames" that do exactly this. You should ask
your support person at Franz about these.
