One application, two toplevel windows, different X displays????

 One application, two toplevel windows, different X displays????

I get the feeling that there may be no good answer to this since I've searched
the man pages and FAQ already.
        I have a Tk application which logs messages from various sources into
text widgets in one or more toplevel windows. The idea is that messages may be
displayed by source, severity of alarm (if any), date or any other criteria.
The problem is that I want to display all the low priority messages on one
screen and all the high priority ones on a different one. Now to the
question...

Is there any way to pop up top level windows on two different X servers from
the
same Tk/Tcl application?

Well it helps to look in the latest tk manpages. I was looking through the
html version which is faster to search but my copy doesn't describe tk4.0
which supports this feature.
        Thanks to those who responded.

What's wrong with:

toplevel .t -screen other.x.server:0
