I'm talking of a popup in an onlick handler. This will not be blocked.

I think that a light box with the fancy shading of the BE and resizing 
"inline window" is distracting and has IMHO possible accesibuiliyt problems.

Interestingly Lightbox v2 (and PMK SlimBox) uses the rel attribute and has 
the image as href of the anchor. And it uses Prototype/scriptaculuos which 
are shipped with 4.1.

So I think it's great that PMK SlimBox doesn't use an XCLASS. But I think 
that it's possible to use a similar TS for the original Lightbox v2.
