I think David Foster just dropped one or two qualifiers, but then his
statement is correct: "any (potentially modal) widget that might need
to be called from within another widget". "Potentially modal" here
means "modal if called from within another widget".
>From the widget_base online documentation (MBAR keyword):
Caution You cannot specify both the MBAR and MODAL keywords for
the same widget. Doing so will cause an error.
Also, modal widgets cannot be scrollable.
