Or, you can select the (i)nheritance option from the methods list.

No, opening a second package browser has no effect on the behavior;
e.g., it would not spawn a second hierarchy browser using the browse
command, because the existing one meets the critieria, it would simply
re-top that one.

Any window is easily duplicated in Squeak via the "duplicate" halo
command.  Just use that to look at multiple codes side-by-side.
