What this does bring to mind is the idea that perhaps in addition to an 
ability to go to a particular page, there might be some utility in being 
able to go to (select) a particular frame/object on a particular page. 
Have to think about this.

Maybe it would be enough just to get a list of frames on a particular 
page, then select one from the list.
