Since the new window is in the new process, can we get the new window' Window object?

On Window, the new window's routing id is equal to main window's.
On Linux, the new window's routing id is different. But calling new window's method from main window has no action.

I ran into this one myself trying to ensure that the currently active window gets certain events. There doesn't seem to be a way to get a reference to created windows in this case.
