I'm not familiar enough with the MrEd implementation to know for sure.
I'd guess there'd be some sequence of calls that would get you that

Maybe Matthew Flatt or John Clements could answer that better.

If we can do this, it might be valuable to add the feature to MysterX in

By the way, I was wrong in my assertion that a child window would be
separate from its parent.  But you knew that already :-)
