When publishing in Storyline, there's an option to launch player in a new window. How does that work with the plugin?

In Storyline, when you go to Player Properties > Other > Browser Settings, you'll see some options like these below:

When you publish with that option, Storyline produces an extra file in the output called launcher.html file.  In that launcher file, it has a button that launches the content in a new window.  We currently ignore that file & always link to the story.html file.  We do this for a number of reasons.  The main reason being is that it creates a lot more clicks to get to the content.  The functionality that provides can basically be mimicked by using the launch content in a new window option in the plugin.
