That's not what I'm worried about.  If you find one of the pages
directly referenced from the frameset, then you get the entire
frameset.  But if you find one of the pages that is indirectly
referenced, you get the page only.  Is that behavior acceptable?  The
first one is nicer but the second one will be more common.
