[Spambayes] Illogicality in the Web UI?

Why not use JavaScript to open a new window? Then you could control the size
of the new window, as well as the other properties JavaScript would offer
you (and that target=_blank would not.) I'm for either idea, though. It
definitely should open in a new window, and in fact that was the behavior I
was expecting when I first started to goof with the web interface.
