When ypu 'clone' a stack, it is automatically opened
an at the front. So your preOpenStack handler will be
called, and you're good to go.

Revolution indeed has no support for classic MDI as we
know from the past, when application windows would
contain other windows - as was the case in Microsoft
producrs running in Windows.

However, window-in-window is a model that is going
away, replaced by tabbed areas in a singe window. Even
Microsoft doesn't seem too fond of it anymore, if you
look at Vista and Office 2007.

But I'm sure Richard Gaskin can point out articles and
research papers on this topic? :-)
