I too think it would be interesting to control the appearance of the browser
temporarily, but after leaving my page the old settings should be
reestablished. To do so, destoying the initial window does'nt seem to be
wise. If you don't destroy the window that is spawning the new one, you can
simply close the new one and return to the old settings easily.

BTW I've found out, that the Navigator keeps in mind the size of a new
spawned window, so if the user once has maximized it, all further created
windows will be maximized too.
