I actually looked at, and played around a bit with RedBox.  You are  
right, it does have a facility to execute an ajax call on closing.   
But the "popup" the client wants requires all kinds of dynamic user  
interactions and updates, itself.  Converting the current popup to a  
pure css popup wouldn't be good for this.  Still searching for a  
solution ... thanks!
