You misread me: the BWindowScreen already has the kWindowScreenFeel 
which makes it frontmost window (even menus open behind it) - it just 
doesn't span over the whole screen, as it doesn't follow the resolution 
changes. So there can be different windows on screen at once, or at 
least that's what the app_server sees.
