Josh -

I did something similar.  Instead of a pop-up, I just submit the form
so the shipping and tax are updated.

I hacked it just like you, but I passed in two parameters --

[display name=country type=country_select2 value="[value country]"
country_submit_form=1 state_submit_form=1]

So, I can set to 1 or 0 to submit or not submit on either a state
change or a country change.

Around line 192:
my $state_js = "";
if ($opt->{state_submit_form}) {
	$state_js = "$v_formv.submit();"

Then, the same place you changed yours:
var str = '<select name="$svar_in" onChange="$v_formv.$svar.value =

(I then do the same thing for the country).

I've been meaning to revisit this and clean it up, try to generalize
it... just haven't had the time yet!
