Personally I hate modals (except for big bad errors which the user can't 
ignore) as I am currently tortured by this in my current app: the programmer 
saved some lines of code years ago (it's Windows 3.1-era software), so then I 
waste time every day.
Point is, it's worth coming up with a general solution for non-modal popups.
Probably a case for the SOAP widget responding to a gmDispatcher event to add 

However popups still need to know 
which episode was active when they were instantiated (not when they issue the 
event) I tried passing it through the stack but you didn't like this, I agree 
it's ugly but I can't think of a better way.

It does order by the number of matches.
I experimented with different thresholds: I found 3 meant completely
ridiculous suggestions were eliminated.
Obviously it will be better once we have some more stuff. My digital camera
is in my desk drware, waiting...
