Re: display.dispose,jframe.close()

Garrett:

If you can live with the method name "desty" then you don't need to
define your own kill().  Just invoke desty(None) since the name
"event" is not used.

Your other change -- returning the myFrame object created -- could be
made a permanent change, since the only downside is that when a
"showDisplay()" is run from the command line, it would print out
an str of that (whatever that might be).  If that would be helpful and
not too onerous, just let me know...

Another option would be to make your own JFrame to hold the display
and your "Close" button.  Then create a JPanel and pass it's
getContentPane() into showDisplay() as the last parameter -- that way
showDisplay should just put the VisAD display in there for you.
