There are a lot of scary platform specific things that have to happen when you
want to do something modally.  These can include pushing the JS context stack,
pushing the thread event queue or a number of other things.

We need to:

a) examine the current use cases for this kind of pattern and see what's out there
b) design an interface to be able to handle them with an eye for the future and
possible users.
