Is it possible to have an action open a new browser window?  All i've
seen so far requires the :popup option in a link_to tag.  Can rails open
a new window in any other way?

You can try to add :target into link_to options (the last hash).
Or, I'd start some time ago to use ModalBox:
to solve those kind of problems.
