Links to URLs that don't point to other locations in
the documentation should open in the top frame, not the
current frame.

When a reStructuredText link like this:

----------------------------------------------
Some text that refers to `something else`_.

.. _something else: http://www.example.org/
----------------------------------------------

the anchor that that gets generated should include a
target="_top" in the moduleListFrame and moduleFrame,
and target="_parent" in the mainFrame. (Using
target="_parent" in the mainFrame should always produce
the right result, while the other two frames are a
compromise since what's really desired is the grandparent.)
