I'd give that another shot. The code in createDisplay() is pretty simple so you should be
able to see where it would fit pretty easily.

That's what my suggestion was meant to be.  ;-)

What might such an additional argument do? If, for example, it is a boolean "frame" argument,
it wouldn't be compatible with modal. That's not necessarily a show-stopper, but does suggest
that maybe a single flag (modal) should be used to determine whether a native frame or a native
dialog is opened.
