Squeak/Tweak display its content in host windows, so for example
Croquet might be able to display multiple views of a scene in
host-controlled windows, if someone got creative with OpenGL.
Somehow I had the impression that this support would allow the reverse
- a host process, like Firefox or Excel, to display its window inside
the Squeak/Tweak Display with some measure of interactivity with
Squeak/Tweak events. Now I'm bummed out because I was hoping that
this would close the "lack of a good Internet browser" gap. Now I'm
curious how Sophie handles HTML (or other Internet-based) links.
