SetViewInfo, RestrictToCategory, Domino Databases, FrameSets, and the NotesView

I can't honestly be the only person to need this type of functionality... so I'll post it to you, Constant Reader. So... here's what I'm trying to do...
Let's envision a dashboard-style application. Several "buttons" that will
display views from several databases. Not too difficult as I'm launching each
view via the old
combinations. I now, however, have a requirement for subcategories to be
displayed. This is proving MOST difficult, as while I can open a given
database view inside of my NotesView frame in my "Dashboard"-styled
application, I can not get a subset of the documents to display - regardless of
what I'm trying here...
If this was for the web, I could easily use the RestrictToCategory=... Domino URL Command argument, but this is strickly for the Notes Client.
I've also tried vast combinations of
@SetViewInfo until my teeth
bled - all to no avail.
So, I'll ask you - have you been able to do something like this before? Open Database 2's "AllBySomeKeys" view in a NotesView frame in Database 1 and show only a subset of the documents from said view? Wanna hear the really fun part? No Embedded Views allowed! Yep - this application could change at will, so the ability to change-via-configuration and not have to modify the target database views makes this that-much-more fun.
Not that I would take without giving back - check out, in the Examples and Downloads section of the site, my aforementioned Excel Export Example, for your RIP&USE pleasure!
