Ok, that sounds good.  Is there an easy method for getting the effigy of 
that workflow?  When I do a Configuration.findEffigy(<actor>), it 
returns null.  I'm not sure how to get a pointer to that open workflow 
from a random place in the code.

In the GetDocumentationAction class, it asks the Configuration for an Effigy for the object you are trying to open the documentation for.  Since there is no effigy for an actor that is not yet part of a model, it fails.  Is there a way for me to add a ghost effigy into the configuration so that the documentation can be created?
