I'm not sure I understand this.
I know I get a security error if I try to insert
using GM, that's the problem I'm trying to solve.
I don't get a security error using the code I suggested. Though I should note
that I'm not passing the "chrome" flag to openDialog.

It's not clear if you are using "feature" in a positive way here...
I don't need a window handle, as I'd like to open the window modally,
though I supose
others might. Which is the problem with using openInTab, I want modal
I want my extension to modify values, so the script can use the modified
values when the window closes.

I took a look. I'm not sure I understand what you are proposing. How would my
extension see the export_to_GM function? I don't want to introduce a
dependency on GM
in my extension.
