RevBrowser bug

I've fought with this before. Its a real pain in the butt. Did things like
setup the browser stack as a float on top stack that was docked with the
stack behind.  Then I could do stuff with the back stack and have the front
respond. Never did work very well.

Ended up doing as you suggested, using the resizer from the library, dumped
the stock decorations etc, and since it was a video player window that I
wished to be able to go in and out of fullscreen while playing a streaming
vid in the browser, I ended up having a 2nd stack that existed for the sole
purpose of going into and out of fullscreen behind the browser window to
obscure the menu bar and dock. libKiosk worked pretty good for this too.

Hoping when/if the externals go public that problems like this will poof and
go away.
