Suggest approach to accepting-values dialog

   In Clim2.0 land, when you use the :own-window t option in accepting-values,
   does clim automatically generate a new window each time it is called, or
   is it smart enough to reuse one previously generated?

   In my particular application, I have a very extensive accepting-values
   dialog (could have a hundred or more accepts) that is used fairly often
   and in the old clim1.1 scheme used a separate pane layout to bring it to
   the forefront when the user wanted to "tweak" an object. Now, I would like
   to have it pop up as a tied-in window to the application frame.
   Any suggestions on what is the best way to implementate this (ala my own
   make-pane or make-clim-application-pane, of which I'm not sure how to tie
   in with my application frame)?

Did anyone answer this?

I would make this its own application frame with an :ACCEPT-VALUE pane
in it, and then simply use ENABLE-FRAME/DISABLE-FRAME to show/hide the
frame.  Make this app have an external interface to initialize the
state of the queries.
