[Seaside] jQuery lightbox prompt

I assume that's the pattern from JQDialogFunctionalTest>>renderLightboxOn:
... but I'd like to do is to effectively defer the building of the scirpt:
() code until the 'onClick: (html jQuery id: id) dialog open;' is triggered.
 I don't have enough context until then (domain state would determine the
modal dialog component).

The jQuery lightbox example, as I understand it, sets up the lightbox
component before the #onClick: script, since the script needs the component
id.  I'd like to create the lightbox component from *within *a #callback:
... just like the way SULightbox is used.

Thanks again, (and I keep thinking I'm missing something really obvious),
