Right. I'll have to adapt AreaTreeParser.setTraits() as well, since the
external-link Trait is no longer a simple String.

A bug or a missing feature, indeed. It is also not possible, AFAICT, to open a
different destination in the same document in a new window. Still, if I
interpret correctly, this is the expected behavior for show-destination="new",
no matter whether the destination is internal or external.

Not exactly. The above option controls whether the plugin is used altogether if
you enter a PDF address in the browser's address bar or click a hyperlink
targeting a PDF. If you disable it, then Adobe Reader or Acrobat is always used
standalone to view PDFs. There is another option that also relates to the
/NewWindow flag. On the General Tab, I have the possibility to disable "Open
cross-document links in the same window". This determines what happens if no
explicit value for the /NewWindow flag is specified. Only, this option does not
influence the behavior in the plugin; only relevant for standalone mode.
