More than one browsing context can listen to a specific MessagePort 
object, but if you clone the MessagePort object, the original one becomes 
orphaned and stops receiving messages.

If you would like more help, I recommend sending a link to the page in 
question to the help at whatwg.org mailing list:

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
